Genre: YA- Fantasy
Publication Date: January 10, 2012
Description: “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 the palace and compete for the heart of the 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.
Why I’m Stoked: This book sounds exciting and interesting and different. It strangely reminds me of a mix between the Bible’s story of Ester and Modelland…wow, could those two books be any different?! Also, I am attracted to this cover! It’s definitely unique!
