My theme song is We Die Young by TheShowdown. I chose this song because in Dauntless they do a lot of dangerous things, so they could die young.

This part of the book shows that Tris belongs in Dauntless. When she gets the rank of sixth, it shows that she was meant to be in Dauntless.
By Veronica Roth
This shows that the faction you choose at the choosing ceremony can change your future forever as it does for Tris.
This is the tatto that Tris got on her coolar bone to represent her family; her mother, father, and brother.
These are two of Tris' tattoos. The two hands is the symbol of Abnegation, Tris' born faction. The flame in the circle of fire is the symbol of the Dauntless, Tris' chosen faction. These symbolize where she came from and where she is now.
Pages 196-199After dinner we go back to the dormitory, and it's hard for me not to sprint, knowing the rankings will be up when we get there. I want to get it over with. At the door to the dormitory, Drew shoves me into the wall to get past me. My shoulder scrapes on the stone, but i keep walking.I'm too short to see over the crowd of initiates standing ner the back of the room, but when i find space between heads to look through, i see that the blackboard is on the ground, leaning against Four's legs, facing away from us. He stands with a piece of chalk in one hand."For those of you who just came in, I'm explaining how the ranks are deterimed," he says. "After the first round of fights, we ranked you according to your skill level. The number of points you earn depends on your skill level and the level of the person you beat. You earn more points for improving and more points for beating someone of a high skill level. I don't reward preying on the weak. That is cowardice."I think his eyes linger on Peter on that last line, but they move on quickly enough thst i'm not sure."If you have a high rank, you lose points for losing to a low-ranked opponent."Molly lets out an unpleasent noise, like a snort or a grumble."Stage two of training is weighted more heavily than stage one, because it is more closely tied to overcoming cowardice," he says. "That said, it is extremely difficult to rank high at the end of initiation if you rank low in stage one."I shift from one foot to the other, trying to get a good look at him. When I finally do, I look away. His eyes are already on me, probably drawn by my nervous movement."We will announce the cuts tomarrow," Four says. "The fact that you are transfers and the Dauntless-born initiates are not will not be taken into consideration. Four of you could be factionless and none of them. Or four of them could be factionless and none of you. Or any combination thereof. That said, here are your ranks."He hangs the board on the hook and steps back so we can see the rankings:1. Edward2. Peter3.Will4. Christina5. Molly6. TrisSixth? I can't be sixth. Beating Molly must have boosted my rank more than I thought it would. And losing to me seems to have lowered hers. I skip to the bottom of the list.7. Drew8. Al9. MyraAl isn't dead last, but unless the Dantless-born initiates completely failed their version of stage one of initiation, he is factionless.I glance at Christina. She tilts her head and frowns at the board. She isn't the only one. The quiet in the room is uneasy, like it is rocking back and forth on a ledge.Then it falls."What?" demands Molly. She points at Christina. "I beat her! I beat her in minutes, and she's ranked above he?""Yeah," says Christina, crossing her arms. She wears a smug smile. "And?""If you intend to secure yourself a high rank, I suggest you don't make a habit of losing to low-ranked opponents," says Four, his voice cuttign through the mutters and grumbles of the other initiates. He pockets the chalk and walks past me without glancing in my direction. The words sting a little, reminding me that I am the low-ranked opponent he's referring to.Apparently they remind Molly, too."You," she says, focusing her narrowed eyes on me. "You are going to pay for this."I expect her to lunge at em, or hit me, but she just turns on her heel and stalks out of the dormitory, and that is worse. If she had exploded, her anger would have been spent quickly, after a punch or two. Leaving means I have to be on my guard.
Divergent is written by Veronica Roth. It is set in Chicago. There are three main problems in Divergent. The first problem Tris has to overcome is getting through the Dauntless iniation. Her second problem was when she had to keep being divergent a secret, because if she didn't she the Dauntless would try to kill her because she couln't be controlled. The third problem is stopping the Erudite from using the Dauntless to take over the government. The characters are Beatrice (Tris), Four (Tobias), Beatirce's mom, Beatrice's dad, Peter, Molly, Caleb, Tori, Marcus, Christina, Eric, Al, Will, Edward, Myra, and Drew. I find the theme to be to persevere in time of hardship or danger.
