I’ve just started this book and it’s obviously about social classes. The difference between the five is Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), Erudite (the intelligent), Abnegation (the selfless), and Candor (the honest). Beatrice Prior is divergent, having inconclusive results from her faction placement test and able to be aware during her simulations.  Despite her inclination for abnegation, she chooses dauntless. She displays too many abruptive traits to believe she’ll fit quietly in her parents faction. Although she had hesitations she fits right in and through a series of ridiculously hard tests she begins to see it as her home. Then small things add up to what becomes a war. Thankfully she had the brains of erudite to overcome it with a little help from her mysterious but hot boo thing. I’m not sure if this is a series, it probably is. I’m not sure that I’ll read it if there is. What I am not sure of is if I believe the intimacy fear thing. I mean come on. Your parents never touched you at all girl? You don’t have tv? No book to say what sex is about. Clearly she knew what it was about but the fear seems irrational. Not sure I believe that. But anyways it was a good read. Check it out. 3/5 for me just because there was a lot I don’t understand about their government and factions. Took me a while to get some answers. Flourish in my comments below readers!
