Review #1
* * * * * Stars (Amazing!)
“The Selection” was about a young prince who wanted to find love.  There were a lot of challenges with the person he wanted.  America didn’t want to find love, but she fell in love with Maxon.  I loved the book because it showed how difficult royal life could be.

* * Stars (Just ok.)
I read “The Selection” because of its apparent popularity among people in my age group.  This dystopian book is basically about a girl named America Singer who grudgingly enters a competition for the hand of the prince of Illea – a post North American country.  Despite her initial judgement of the prince, she finds that he is not who she thought he was, and slowly finds herself falling in love.  I would not say that this is the best of books, but I continued to read it and give it a chance

“The Selection” is an opportunity to be married to Prince Maxon.  But for America Singer, being selected is a nightmare.  She already fell in love with Aspen.  Then America meets Prince Maxon.  She gradually gives him a chance.  I liked the idea and how it was written.

The main plot of the novel is how 15 girls compete for a chance to win the heart of the prince and the throne that comes with it.  1 girl is selected from each of the districts and America is chosen even when she didn’t want to!  She is swept into a life of luxury that she was never exposed to with the announcement of her selection.  The question is how far will she go to win the heart of the prince and the nation?

35 young women are chosen by the prince to find the next queen.  America at the start of the competition was only there for her family.  But at the end she falls in love with Maxon.  I loved all the emotion that is shown and how it’s shown.
