Thirty-five beautiful girls. Thirty-five beautiful rivals…
It’s the chance of a lifetime and 17-year-old America Singer should feel lucky. She has been chosen for The Selection, a reality TV lottery in which the special few compete for gorgeous Prince Maxon’s love.
Swept up in a world of elaborate gowns, glittering jewels and decadent feasts, America is living a new and glamorous life. And the prince takes a special interest in her, much to the outrage of the others.
Rivalry within The Selection is fierce and not all of the girls are prepared to play by the rules. But what they don’t know is that America has a secret – one which could throw the whole competition… and change her life forever.
This is going to be a relatively short review because I plan to do a whole series review later on!
I’ve put off reading this book for so long mostly because I’m not a big fan of series. However this goes against all my other judgements because I absolutely adored this book.
From the very beginning I knew I liked the main character America Singer, I saw so much of myself in her, she never followed the rules,she bended them 😉 At the beginning of the book we start to see different sides of America from relationships with her family to her secret love Aspen. America’s relationships with people are a key point to the story.
I felt like this book had the Hunger Games theme lying in there ever so slighty ( this made the book even better) . I thought the selection was going to be very cheesy and stero- typical but it was anything but that. I did think at the beginning it was a bit slow however it did improve massively as I flew through the book within 3 hours!
I would highly recommend this book as it exceeds expectations!!
