Synopsis: 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.
Not much to say about the book other than the fact that I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It was just such a quick and interesting read! The world was very nicely woven and everything. Although I do wish there was more action in it. But I guess you can't really say that since it IS a romance book. But still... Overall I do think the book was excellent. The characters were super interesting to read about as well. I think that anyone who enjoys somewhat love triangles, romance and dystopian minus action, will enjoy the book!
