The Selection is a chance of a lifetime for most girls, a chance to get swept up in a world of glimmering jewels and the showering of riches and affection.
Not for America Singer, a commoner. She is a Five in love with a Six named Aspen. Even though girls are encouraged to marry a higher rank (a lower number, like a Four or a Three) America knows that her heart will always belong to Aspen and is too intoxicated by Aspen’s love that she does not seem to care.
And then the Selection comes along, a chance for 35 girls to compete for the gorgeous Prince Maxon’s affection. Prince Maxon is the future king of Ilea. America knows she could never love Maxon, so she does not even thing about entering. Until Aspen’s affection starts to waver and he encourages her to enter. America is shocked when she sends in the papers and is selected to go.
Who will America’s heart belong to? The man of her dreams, and the one she will always love, or the Prince, who can give her an unimaginable future?
This book was AMAZING! I would give it a ten out of ten rating. Read it if you liked Starters or Delirium.
