Synopses & Reviews
For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.
But 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. 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.
Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself—and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.
“An engrossing tale reminiscent of Shannon Hales Princess Academy and Ally Condies Matched. Fairy-tale lovers will lose themselves in Americas alternate reality and wish that the next glamorous sequel were waiting for them.” School Library Journal
“Casss immensely readable debut novel is a less drastic Hunger Games, with elaborate fashion and trappings. The fast-paced action will have readers gasping for the upcoming sequel.” Booklist
“A cross between The Hunger Games (minus the bloodsport) and The Bachelor (minus the bloodsport), this trilogy launch is a lot of fun. Cass deftly builds the chemistry between America and Maxon, while stroking the embers of Americas first, forbidden love.” Publishers Weekly
“Reality T.V. meets dystopian fairy tale in Kiera Casss delightful debut. Charming, captivating, and filled with just the right amount of swoon!” Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of Paranormalcy
