3: B | ooks | In a futuristic Chicago setting, all sixteen year olds have an important decision to make; one that will impact the rest of their lives. Do they stay in the faction they were born into? Or transfer into one that better suits them? After taking the aptitude test, Beatrice Prior discovers that she is different than many of peers and the other members. Being divergent creates bigger problems for her when she realizes that the society she lives in is falling apart and she is one of few who has the ability to put it back together.

4: C | limax | The climax of the book occurs when members of the faction are put into a simulation to make them fight the Abnegation. While most members are unaware of what they are doing, Beatrice is awake and has to everything she can to stop the war from continuing and save her family and friends before it is too late.

5: D | escription of Main Characters | Beatrice Prior- Nicknamed "Tris" after entering Dauntless, uses her unique qualities to save the faction she left behind.

6: E | xposition | Setting: Futuristic Chicago | Main Character: Beatrice Prior is sixteen, she lives with her mom, dad, and brother in the Abnegation Faction | Background Information: In this society, there are five factions: Abnegation- Selflessness Dauntless- Courage Erudite- Knowledge Abity- Peace CAndor- Honesty

7: F | igurative Language | Personification: "The atmosphere feels hungry" (Ross 5) "A jacket sleeve smacks me on the cheek" (Ross 6) | Imagery: "A dog with a pointed nose stands a few yards away from me. It crouches low and creeps towards me, its lips peeling back from it's white teeth." (Ross 14) | Similes: "Its muscles bunch up like coiled wire." (Ross 16) "A pale ring of sunlight burns into the clouds like a pale ring of sunlight." (Ross 38)

8: G | ive an Alternate Ending | In an alternate ending, Four and Tris would shut down the simulation. Then the Dauntless soldiers would join with the Abnegation to defeat the Erudite. After the war is over, they would get rid of the factions and everyone would live together in one society.

10: H | eart to Heart | Dear Al, Throughout you journey in the initiation process of Dauntless, it seems you have doubts about your choice to transfer into Dauntless. Often, I notice your homesickness and guilt about the tasks you are made to do during trainings. Many of your peers are aware of these difficulties you have along with the changes in your behavior and attitude since you have begun your mental training. You need to remember that despite the bad things you have done at Dauntless, many good things have come out of this experience such as friends you have made and the fears you have overcome. After betraying Tris the way you did and losing her as one of your best friends, I know it may seem like there is no hope and no possible way you can deal with the guilt from your actions, especially after finding yourself at the bottom of the rankings. However, is having to live factionless really worth putting the people who care so much about you through that pain and sorrow?

11: Sometimes it may seem like your world is falling to pieces but something positive will come out of it. Sometimes others just need time to heal, but eventually they will find the strength to move on. If you follow through with your plans tonight, you are not giving them that chance. More importantly, you are not giving yourself a chance, a chance to be great, to achieve your goals, to become a member of Dauntless. The trainings are not over yet and you still have the opportunity to make something of yourself. So Al, do not give up on your dreams tonight, have the courage and strength to fix your mistakes, to allow the broken bonds to heal and to push through the challenges life throws you. I know you can be great, you just need to believe in yourself. Sincerely, Mallory

Give an example of each. -Man vs. Man: Peter tries to throw her over the chasm and also physically fights her as a part of a challenge. -Man vs. Self: Tris tries to figure out if she belongs in Dauntless and if she should have left her family. 2.Do you think Tris made the right decision in choosing Dauntless? - Yes, she followed her heart and chose the faction where she felt like she belonged. 3. Why was Tris' decision so hard to make? -She did not want to leave her family, especially after Caleb left her parents for Erudite. 4.Why is it important that Tris keep the fact that she's divergent a secret? -The leaders of Dauntless will kill her if they find out, because she thinks differently and is unable to be controlled.

15: 5. How did Caleb react when Tris showed up at Erudite headquarters? Were you surprised by his reaction? Why or why not? -He was angry with her for coming and was afraid they would get in trouble. I was not surprised by his reaction because he always followed the rules and scolded her when she did not. 6.How did Tobias get the nickname "Four"? -He has only four fears in the simulation that is used for the initiation process. 7.At the choosing ceremony, how is Tris' mother's reaction different than her father's? -Her mother wants them to go wherever they want and is okay with the decisions that they made.

16: L | essons Learned | One lesson that I learned in this book is that you always have to follow your heart. You must think of others but you must also think of yourself. It may hurt them now but you will find they will eventually forgive you.

17: M | aking Connections | In the story Tris' family is very important to her. Like Tris, my family is very important to me. They play a large role in my life and I value their approval and opinion in my choices and decisions. | When Tris makes important decisions in the book she would always think them through. I, like Tris, tend to really think things through and tend to weigh all of my options before making my final decisions.

18: N | arration | Divergent is told in a first person point of view. The book is written from Tris' eyes.By telling the story this way, the reader knows more of Tris' thoughts and feelings

19: O | bituary | Albert "Al" Al died at the age of sixteen while living in the Dauntless headquarters. He committed suicide after living in the faction for only a couple of weeks. Born into the Candor faction, he transfered to Dauntless during the initiation process. He lived with his mother and father before transferring and has no known siblings. He was a very brave young man who made some mistakes in his life but had a special care for those around him and touched everyone he met in a special way.

20: P | rotagonist | The protagonists in this book are Tobias (Four), Tris, and the Abnegation members.

21: Q | uotes | In Divergent, Al says the following to Tris, "I think it is more important to protect people. To stand up for people. Like you did for me...That's what Dauntless are right? That's what courage is. Not hurting people for no reason." (Roth 190). This quote is important because it really explains the way the Dauntless used to live their lives and what they used to believe. The ideas he talks about are much like the way that Tris and Four wish to see the Divergent live. | Before the choosing ceremony, Caleb gives Tris a piece of advice. He says, "Beatrice...We should think of our family...But. But we must also think of ourselves." (Roth 36). This quote is one my favorites because it is very out of the ordinary for someone who is from the Abnegation to say something like this. They are taught to always think of others before themselves. Caleb's statement foreshadows the fact that he may not make the choice everyone is expecting.

22: R | esolution | Tris, her father, Caleb, Marcus and Peter return to the Dauntless headquarter to find the control room. Once they find the room, Tris has to try to get Tobias out of the simulation so they can shut down the program and try to stop the war before they are too late.

23: S | ensory Details | In the following passage, Roth uses good sensory details, she writes, "I aim an uppercut low, below her bellybutton. My fist sinks into her flesh, forcing a heavy breath from her mouth that i fell against my ear. As she gasps, I sweep kick her legs out from under her and she falls hard on the ground, sending dust into the air. I pull my foot back and kick as hard as I can at her ribs." (Roth 173) When reading this passage you are really able to imagine the fight and you feel like you are there and can hear each part and see what is going on.

24: T | op Five Song List | You know the bed feels warmer Sleeping here alone You know I dream in color And do the things I want You think you've got the best of me Think you've had enough the last laugh Bet you think that everything good is gone Think you left me broken down Think that I'd come running back Baby, you don't know me, 'cause you're dead wrong | 1."Stronger" Kelly Clarkson Dauntless members go through a lot mentally and physically. However, they push through it and it only makes them stronger. | Chorus: What doesn't kill you makes you stronger Stand a little taller Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone What doesn't kill you makes you fighter Footsteps even lighter Doesn't mean I'm over 'cause you're gone | Bridge: What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger Just me, myself and I What doesn't kill you makes you stronger Stand a little taller Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone You heard that I was starting over with someone new They told you I was moving on, over you You didn't think that I'd come back I'd come back swinging You tried to break me, but you see Chorus: What doesn't kill you makes you stronger Stand a little taller Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone What doesn't kill you makes you fighter Footsteps even lighter Doesn't mean I'm over 'cause you're gone

25: 2."What Makes You Beautiful" One Direction Throughout the book, Tris battles with her self image. Tobias finds her to be pretty but she does not think she is very attractive and struggles with that everyday.

26: 3. "A Place In This World" Taylor Swift Tris could not figure out where she belonged in her society. She was constantly caught between Dauntless and the Abnegation. | I don't know what I want So don't ask me 'cause I'm still trying to figure it out Don't know what's down this road I'm just walking, trying to see through the rain coming down Even though I'm not the only one who feels the way I do I'm alone, on my own and I'm starting off I'll be strong, I'll be wrong, oh, but life goes on Oh, I'm just a girl trying to find a place in this world Got the radio on, my old blue jeans And I'm wearing my heart on my sleeve Feeling lucky today, got the sunshine Can you tell me what more do I need And tomorrow's just a mystery, oh, yeah, but that's okay I'm alone, on my own and I'm starting off I'll be strong, I'll be wrong, oh, but life goes on Oh, I'm just a girl trying to find a place in this world Maybe I'm just a girl on a mission but I'm ready to fly I'm alone, on my own and I'm starting off Oh, I'll be strong, I'll be wrong, oh, but life goes on Oh, I'm alone, on my own and I'm starting off Oh, I'm just a girl trying to find a place in this world Oh, I'm just a girl Oh, I'm just a girl Oh, I'm just a girl

29: U | ndercover Mission | Veronica Roth wrote Divergent while studying creative writing at Northern University. | Veronica Roth lives with her husband in Chicago, Illinois. | She is a full time writer and just recently graduated college.

30: V | isiting Your Favorite Character | Interview Questions For Tris: 1.What is the main reason you chose Dauntless over Abnegation? -Tris struggled to decide which faction she would chose, in the end she shockingly chose Dauntless. 2.If Al was still alive would you have been able to forgive him? -Tris has a lot of guilt after talking to Al, after finding out about his death she becomes even more overcome with guilt. 3.How do you think your life would be different had you chosen Abnegation? -She grows a lot as a person in Dauntless, things could have been very different had she chosen to stay in the Abnegation. 4.How do you think your decision has affected you family? -She thinks about them a lot during the initiation process and is very concerned for their well-being after both she and Caleb left. 5.How do you think the war affected your society and the factions? -The factions were created to sustain peace and after the war they may or may not be able to return to that lifestyle.

31: W | hy? | Throughout Divergent, the main characters are motivated by several different ideas. Many of the characters strive to be accepted into the Dauntless faction. Throughout the initiation process, the fact that they want to rank well and become part of the Dauntless faction pushes all of the teens to do better. It also makes them want to continue through the mentally and physically difficult trainings. Many of the transfers also wish to be accepted in a different way, by their parents and families. Tris especially, being divergent, wants her decision to be accepted by her family. Because she possesses the characteristics of both Dauntless and Abnegation, she still wishes to be apart of the Abnegation lifestyle she left behind. She is unable to simply forget about her family and previous way of life like they are supposed to and many of the others have. She, more than the rest, wants her decision to be accepted. All of the character's want for acceptance makes them work harder to survive the initiation process.

32: X | enophobia | In the book, all members of the society have a case of "xenophobia". The factions all have fears of the others. They do not typically spend time together or socialize with them except for during meetings and ceremonies. Although some of the factions have a lot more tension between them than others, all of the factions tend to stay away from one another.

33: Y | ou Choose | Beatrice | Both | Tris | -Shy -Abnegation -Unsure of where she belongs -Does not think highly of herself | -Thinks about family -Thoughtful of others -Selfless | -Daring -Dauntless -Confident -Knows she will always have Abnegation in her

34: Z | inger | The main "zinger" for me was finding out that several of Tris' peers and family members were like her in many ways. Whether they were once Abnegation or Dauntless, Divergent, or a combination it always came as a surprise to me.
