The Selection

The Selection is one of the best dystopian books I read this summer.  The book is based around America Singer, a teenage girl who lives in a society with kings and queens.  The prince of the country is getting ready to be married and the tradition of the country is that he chooses his bride from 25 girls he has never met before.  The girls live at the castle, try to win his love, and he eliminates them one by one.  Sound familiar?  Just like the Bachelor or Bachelorette.  America joins the competition so she can get much-needed money and food for her family. She doesn’t want to win because she is already in love with a boy from her town.  America must decide what her future holds—a love she has always known, or a Prince.

This was such a fun book to read.  I loved the description of this society and the cattiness of the girls in the competition.  If you like dystopian books, romance books or reality tv, you will love this book.
