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.
Firstly I would like to thank NetGalley for approving me to have a copy of this series to read and review
This will be my first time reading any thing by Kiera Class.
The thought of marrying the prince and becoming a princess is every little girls dream…..that is everyone except America, of course.
America, who’s family currently resides at #5, dreams of marrying the boy she has fallen in love with, a boy, who within the hierarchy’s structure, is below herself (royalty being ones and going down from there)
But what happens when love isn’t enough?
When all your dreams are thrown away for pride?
If being heartbroken wasn’t enough America has been selected to take part in the Selection….Selection you ask, what’s that, well you see the prince is becoming of age and requires a princess to wed, the selection consists of 30 something girls selected from different sector numbers to take part in what some call a “reality TV show”
Being part of the selection means compensation that her family so desperately needs. America doesn’t want any of it though, she only wants to do it for her family. Unfortunately feelings coming into the equations, feelings she wasn’t on planning having.
What happen when Prince Maxon starts sending girls home?
Will America make the Elite selection and make it through to the next round?
What happens when an old flame shows up?
Will her feelings for Maxon and Aspen get in her way?
