The day I got back I was in at the library borrowing books. I have already read The Selection from this library, late last year. I died when the last page said "End of book 1". They have book 2 and 3 at the library now too, so I'm HAPPY!
The story has an 'end of society as we know it' similar to The Hunger Games, Divergent and The Giver, except instead of killing, factions and film noir; teenage girls from all different castes (there are 8 and they are like social rankings with Ones being the highest and Eights being the very, very lowest) they go into running to become Queen.
America is a five. She has four siblings and is hopelessly in love with Aspen, a Six. Their love is forbidden and Aspen not wanting to hold her back forces her to enter the selection. She does. Nekk Minnet she is in a competition against 34 other girls all competing for their heart of Prince Maxon, something America does not want. Or does she?? *cue creepy music*
This is a really good read; exciting and adrenalin pumping. America is a fierce character who I love, though she is annoyingly indecisive. Like worse than me! And that's bad, ask my friends!
