The author presents the material with such intriguing details that makes the reader want to keep going.  America Singer, a girl of low status, sings and performs for money to help support her family. Prince of Illea, Maxon Schreave, considered smart, handsome, professional and fawned over by all the girls, has the task of choosing a wife out of thirty-five young maidens. America, unlike the others, believes the prince is snobby and fake; she would “rather die than marry him.” Some of bias, however, stems from her already having a sweetheart of her own, Aspen Ledger. When the time comes to marry off the prince, a “selection” comes into effect. America’s mother refuses to let her off the hook until she at least submits an application, and for numerous reasons, America finally concedes. To her utter dismay, she is chosen, and her world comes tumbling down. The Selection, filled with life changing events, competitive girls, and a very unexpected love story. is a book one of a series of five: The Selection, The Elite, The One, The Heir, and The Crown.
