I realized that it was set in Chicago already, simply because it's the city of which I'm most familiar. I think it just kind of crept into my brain, and I just decided to go with it. Was the process of writing a prequel difficult, or did you have the idea all along? In the really, really rough draft of Divergent , the first piece I ever wrote comes from Tobias' perspective.
It's just a couple of pages, but he didn't work as the narrator because he wasn't as surprising as Tris, a small, mild-mannered girl who chooses Dauntless. That felt like a really urgent story to me. When I went to write the prequel, I already had an idea of his history, so it was just a matter of putting it down on paper.
But, the tricky part is that he and Tris have a very similar character trajectory: They choose Dauntless and one of their friends dies significantly earlier in the process. So, I had to find ways to make their stories feel as different as they are, which was a big challenge. So, would you say that's why you choose to explore the character of Tobias Eaton in Four? And, it felt important to sort of dismantle this mysterious-man thing that kind of surrounds him.
Meanwhile, I love that just as much as the next person. I also think he's an interesting, well-rounded character.
He appears on the page as more of a real person, so I enjoyed exploring his back story. It was good for me; I hope it's good for everyone else. How and why was it good for you? But, also, his story is totally different from Tris' internally. She's trying to become self-actualized, the person she's always meant to be, and he's just trying to reconcile with people around him and learn to rely on others.
So, that was a completely different story to tell.
There's something really exciting and compelling about that to me. It was also a bit of a challenge because I'm so used to Tris at this point. Do you think young-adult literature is a good place for young women to consider their sexuality? Did you feel a responsibility to present the budding sexual chemistry between the two of them? I think young-adult books are an awesome place to explore this issue — rather, this part of life.
Especially because it's the time in your life that you're making this very personal decision.

It's only yours, only you get to make it, and books are a really safe space to look at characters who are making all kinds of decisions. So, I think it's important to have a wide range of sexual experiences in young-adult books. I don't believe in pretending that these feelings or decisions or acts don't exist — I think that's crazy.
But, as far as Tris and Four go, my goal was really to be very honest about what they were thinking and the decisions that they are making.
