The Selection by Kiera Cass
Thirty-five girls are given the chance of a lifetime. The chance to marry the prince. American Singer is selected despite her reservations to compete for a chance to marry Prince Maxon.
She leaves behind her family, home and secret love for a chance that she isnt' sure she wants --- a chance, that will raise her status in the caste system and give her family much needed money.
The Selection doesn't really add anything new or original to the dystopian genre but it holds its own. It is an exciting, fun, entertaining read. The storyline is interesting, the character development is fantastic and the book is well paced. There isn't one boring moment!
This is setting up to get an excellent trilogy. (Love, LOVE, love the cover!)
