For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.
But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.
Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself--and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.
What I Think
For the first couple of pages i wasn't sure what was going on but the more i read the clearer it got and the more the story flowed, the story reminded me of something but couldn't put my finger on it. I really liked the book, totally fell in love with the covers of not just this one but all of the series.
The storyline follows America when she gets the the selection letter to be in the draw to become the new princess, but there is a problem she is in love with a number 6 Aspen and she doesn't want to be in the draw just in case she gets picked but things happen and she puts her name in.
Prince Maxon was not like America was thinking he was like or told about the first couple of times the had alone time (one on one) it made me laugh out loud, things happen at makes you sit there going no she did not just do or say that he is the prince. but he is pretty down to earth in a prince kind of way.
I have been wanting to read this series for a while now and im so glad that i started reading it, i am recommending this to all of my followers as well as family and friends that love to read. I gave this read a 4 reader rating because it was just a little slow getting into it, other then that i would of gave it a 5 rating.
