She makes lots of new friends and enemies in Dauntless and falls for her trainer, Four (Tobias), who has his own secrets to hide...Triss learns how dangerous it is to be divergent and starts to uncover a plot by other factions...

Why Should Everyone Read It?

This book was really exciting and some of the descriptions were heart-stopping (especially the zip-wire). I really cared what happened to the characters and can't wait to read the next instalment.
