The main character that was in my novel was a girl named Tris. When Tris picks her faction at the age of 16, she picks Dauntless. On page 47 it says, “I am selfish.” “I am brave.” Those words mean that she is very self-confident in herself. Tris grows in the Dauntless community with one of her new good old friends, Christina. On page 66, Christina shows a little of her spunky attitude by saying this, “Who’s that?” hisses Christina. I think that shows a lot of her spunk.
The main conflict of this story is just to stay high in the rankings so you can at least survive. I mean, if this stories time was real, I would probably not be alive right now. That’s how tough it is to stay alive during this time. On page 253, it talks about how Tris is stuck in a tank filled with water! She tries to get out but then she ends up breaking the glass so she is free. That would scare me so bad just being in a glass tube I would be dead before the water started to rise.
