Recommendation

I think that mostly high school girls would love this book, its kind of like the bachelors.

maxon shreave

trait one; maxon loves america but america doesnt feel quite the same.

evidence; if you dont want me to be in love with you, you have to stop looking so lovely.


trait two; trying to get america to realize how much he loves her

evidence; break my heart, break it a thousand times if you like, it was only ever yours to break.

not wanting the crown means you're probably the best person to have it.
