Going your own way is never easy. When Beatrice or Tris Prior chose to enter the Dauntless faction over her home faction Abnegation she knew that this would mean leaving her family behind. In Veronica Roth’s best selling Divergent trilogy we see Tris go from a girl who craved adventure and got just what she asked for. However, early on in the series we are told that Tris is divergent, hence the name of the series, and that she won’t fit into any faction. Tris is informed that she has to hide from people who are hunting divergents. When she chooses Dauntless, she is told constantly that she is foolish for choosing the faction that builds warriors and forces you to face your fears. Through the first book we see Tris go from the bottom of barrel to becoming a female warrior. Tris Prior is a good female role model because she chose how to live her life in her own way. She chose not to live by the rules and in the end freed herself.
