My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm so glad that I decided to pick this book up when I did because it was freaking amazing! I loved every minute of it! First of all let me just say It's a tiny bit like The Hunger Games but not as much as everyone says it is. Which is good because this book totally stands on its own two feet. My favorite character is probably Tris because she changed so much and for the better too!

This book is about a girl who turns 16 and she has to figure out which Faction she belongs too and which she wants to join. Here's a little bit of back story there is like 5 or 6 Factions and when the kids turn 16 they have to take an aptitude test which tells them where they'd most likely fit in and then they have to choose which faction they want. This could mean leaving there families behind and changing your life completely or it could mean staying where you've been what you've known your whole life.

Tris makes the hard choice of leaving her home faction to go to Dauntless. Which is the brave group, and let me tell you throughout the book she proves she is brave multiple times. Sticking up for her friends, being the first to jump off the building, saving her friends/boyfriend/family, and so many other things. At first Tris is not sure where she fits in. She chooses Dauntless but she's nervous she feels like she's going to fail even though she's close to #1.

I love her friends Christina, Will, Al (Before he did what he did) the reason I loved them is because they were there for her no matter what even when she could've been the reason they were faction less at first they quickly got over it and stood by her side.

Now what can i say about Four? I would call him the other name but that would be spoiler so I won't. From the very beginning of the book I fell in love with Four. He seemed like this bad boy with tattoos who had a little crush on Tris. But when he started to show his true colors to Tris, shared his fears and secrets with her I fell in love with him even more. He is definitely #1 or 2 up there on my favorite book boyfriends. So much happened in the end which is why I absolutely can't wait to get my hands on Insurgent which comes out in a few days!
