What is "The Selection"?

The Selection is the chance of a lifetimes for 35 girls, of all castes. This is one lucky girls chance to escape from the life they were born into, along with their family. You get to live in the castle throughout the competition, knowing your family is being cared for as well, and at the end of it you might permanently live there, with Prince Maxon. That's right, from the 35 ladies, one will become his wife and turn from working class to royalty. Who wouldn't want to enter?

That Who is America Singer

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. Basically being bribed by her mother to attempt it, her boyfriend wanting her to as well. 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. Why would she want to be there? It's not all happy shiny days.


Then America meets the Prince. And her future possibly starts to change from original plans.

Some of the Main Characters:

My thoughts on the Book..

The Selection starts out a little slow, but it does go into detail about each of the main characters. Kiera covers the characters personalities, thoughts, family, and history with ease and able to comprehend. Another bad thing that I could really "spoil" is the uncanny coincidence that America's last name is Singer and her occupation is a singer..

It is an original idea, and it'll keep you on the edge of your seat once the games begin.
