"Fear doesn't shut you down; it wakes you up. I've seen it, it's fascinating." -Four
And what I've told her is so vague as to be negligible, because I have a problem with specificity.
...in Abnegation I would go over to her house for dinner with her family if I was interested in her, I would find out what volunteering project she was working on and insinuate myself into it.
“I'll have to keep looking for more of them, more brief moments of freedom in a world that refuses to allow it.”
"One Choice, Breaks free of his past
One Choice, Embraces his future

One Choice, Changes him- forever
One Choice will free him”

SummaryAdd a Summary
This book explains the life story of Tobias Eaton (From Divergent) in first person perspective. It explains why he first chose Dauntless and how well he managed during and after initiation-now called Four, he considers his transfer from Abnegation to Dauntless a fresh beginning, a new life. This book includes certain scenes from Divergent with Beatrice Prior.
Two years before Beatrice Prior made her choice, the sixteen-year-old son of Abnegation’s faction leader did the same. Tobias’s transfer to Dauntless is a chance to begin again. Here, he will not be called the name his parents gave him. Here, he will not let fear turn him into a cowering child.
Newly christened “Four,” he discovers during initiation that he will succeed in Dauntless. Initiation is only the beginning, though; Four must claim his place in the Dauntless hierarchy. His decisions will affect future initiates as well as uncover secrets that could threaten his own future—and the future of the entire faction system.
Two years later, Four is poised to take action, but the course is still unclear. The first new initiate who jumps into the net might change all that. With her, the way to righting their world might become clear. With her, it might become possible to be Tobias once again.
bestselling author Veronica Roth comes a companion volume to the worldwide bestselling divergent series, told from the per-spective of the immensely popular character Tobias. The four pieces included here—The Transfer, The Initiate, The Son, and The Traitor—plus three additional exclusive scenes, give readers an electrifying glimpse into the history and heart of Tobias, and set the stage for the epic saga of the Divergent trilogy.
