"The Selection"

Last night I finished a good book that I thought I'd write about. It's called The Selection and it's written by Kiera Cass. Here is a short synopsis of the book:

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.

This book takes place in an urban, dystopian society and is very similar to books like The Hunger Games, Matched, Divergent and Legend. If you enjoy books like that, then you will probably like The Selection. As with the other books I mentioned, this book is part of a series, so be prepared for a bit of a cliffhanger at the end of the book. If you decide to read this book I hope you like it, especially if it's because of my recommendation!
