The Selection

by Keira Cass

Rating: 4 stars
Review by Lauren
Set in the futuristic, dystopian country of Illéa, The Selection follows a young teenager named America Singer. When her mother encourages her to enter The Selection, a competition for the crown of Illéa and the heart of the gorgeous Prince Maxon, she apprehensively agrees. America, however, does not want to be selected, because it would mean leaving behind her secret lover Aspen and competing for a crown she doesn’t want. However, America’s life changes forever once the thirty-five selected girls are announced on national television, and she must make a choice between two very different guys, and two very different worlds. This book is a thrilling combination of dystopian novel and fairy tale. The main character America is strong-willed and hilariously stubborn, and her personality leads to laugh-out-loud, embarrassing situations and interesting conflicts with others. If you loved The Hunger Games and Disney Princesses, this is the book for you. Also available as a downloadable e-book.
