Book BFF: Tris Prior

Book BFF was created by Larks Andrea, Paula, and Jen to showcase some of our favorite ladies & was originally inspired by Book Boyfriend. We'd love it if you'd join us featuring your favorite Book BFFs and leaving links so we can check out your posts. We will be alternating between Book Boyfriends and Book BFFs on Thursdays. 

This week my Book BFF is Beatrice Prior from Veronica Roth's Divergent series.
My ideal Tris is Amanda Seyfried.

Nickname: Tris

Appearance: *dull blonde hair, worn in a braid
*large, round blue gray eyes
*narrow face, long, thin nose
*small frame; no muscles at the beginning of the book. Four describes her as short and skinny
*adds several tattoos during the course of the first book
*Through the course of her training, she sports various cuts and bruises

Facts about Tris
*She was born in Abnegation faction, but chooses Dauntless at her choosing ceremony.
*She grew up with both parents around, and an older brother, Caleb.
*Her father is an important government leader. Some think that her choice to leave Abnegation reflects badly on her father.
*despite the fact that she's never formed many close friendships before, she makes friends easily among her class of initiates.
*She has a secret. In her world, it's a BIG one. 

" Are you human, Tris? Being up this high. . . it doesn't scare you at all?" ~ Four, page 144

"I have never (before) been carried around by a large boy, or laughed until my stomach hurt at the dinner table, or listened to the clamor of a hundred people all talking at once. Peace is restrained; this is free." ~Tris, page 250

". . . it's when you're acting selflessly that you are at your bravest." ~Four, page 311

"Fear doesn't shut you down; it wakes you up. I've seen it. It's fascinating." ~ Four, page 313

"Sometimes I forget that I can hurt you. That you are capable of being hurt." ~ Four, page 366

Why she's my Book BFF: I admire Tris' courage in choosing to follow her instincts, rather than simply do as she is expected. She's a smart girl who knows how to use her temper to her advantage, and doesn't let it get in the way of being a good friend. 


  1. I'm not normally a big fan of Amanda Seyfreid but I DO love Tris... and actually... these pics are great representations of her! Can't wait for Insurgent!!
