I Belong


On the fifth day after Christmas my true love gave to me…

…five factions warring.

Chicago is a city divided into five factions: the Dauntless (brave), the Erudite (intelligent), the Candor (honest), the Amity (peaceful) and the Abnegation (selfless). Everyone at the age of 16 is given the choice to choose which faction they would like to be in for the rest of their lives. Each faction has their own initiation, testing each candidate to see if they are worthy to be in that faction. If they don’t pass, they are cast away, doomed to be Factionless for the rest of their lives.

The Dauntless are the warriors of the city. They protect and guard the wall surrounding Chicago from the wasteland outside. Often brave to the point of reckless, The Dauntless honor courage and strength, even if showing courage and strength evolve into bullying or stupidity. Normal attire include anything black or leather, and tattoos often adorn their skin.

The Erudite are the doctors, inventors and teachers. They bury themselves in books, but serve a key role in the city. They create new technology, improve current technology and record everything in between. Some are arrogant and pretentious. The Erudite promote the thirst for knowledge. Normal attire include blue collared shirts or lab coats.

The Candor create the truth serum, which makes a person unable to tell a lie. Although they have no specific function in the city, they are adept in the law. They are often blunt and critical, choosing to always speak the truth, no matter how harsh it is. Lies and half-truths are disapproved; they would rather be strict and honest rather than peaceful and lied to. They wear black and white.

The Amity are the farmers of the city. They provide the food, working closely with Erudite for the technology they create. The Amity value peace and cooperation from all. There is no single leader; all decisions are voted upon by the entire faction. Most Amity are light-hearted and fun. They wear bright colors, mainly red and yellow.

The Abnegation are the governmental leaders of the city. Theoretically, they are the perfect leaders because they put everyone else’s needs before theirs. They do not allow themselves to have personal trinkets, look at themselves in mirrors or stand out in any way. To them, pride is a sin. They wear plain grey clothing with their hair tied back.

Questioning the functionality of such a city? Read the entire story in…

Synopsis:

One choice can transform you — or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself — while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris’s initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable — and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
