Thirty-five beautiful girls. Thirty-five beautiful rivals…

It’s the chance of a lifetime and 17-year-old America Singer should feel lucky. She has been chosen for The Selection, a reality TV lottery in which the special few compete for gorgeous Prince Maxon’s love.

Swept up in a world of elaborate gowns, glittering jewels and decadent feasts, America is living a new and glamorous life. And the prince takes a special interest in her, much to the outrage of the others.

Rivalry within The Selection is fierce and not all of the girls are prepared to play by the rules. But what they don’t know is that America has a secret – one which could throw the whole competition… and change her life forever.

My Review:

A friend of mine recommended this first book in The Selection series to me, and I absolutely loved it! The book has been likened to The Bachelor and The Hunger Games and because I love both, I was excited about The Selection. America is a very likable character, she isn’t afraid to be herself and when she meets Maxon for the first time (and every other time after that) she isn’t afraid to stand up for what she believes in. I love the way that Maxon and America’s love story starts in this book. America proposes to Maxon that they become friends as she isn’t sure about him, I think that this is what made him choose her to move on to the Elite. My favorite part was probably when Maxon asked America if she could possibly see herself falling in love with him. Her answer was yes, and I hope that she does end up falling in love with him. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romance and who likes the Bachelor tv series. The ending ends on a cliffhanger, so I would have the next book on hand for when you finish. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series 🙂
