First, I'd like to say that this book series has become one of my favorites. I saw the first book in my local library and I decided to give it a shot and I loved it, so naturally I had to pick this one up as well. I feel like it wasn't as good as the first book; the love triangle got on my nerves a bit in this book, but it was good and it ended very well. I'm just sad that now I have to wait for The One, the final book in the series.. I'm something like number 49 on the hold list, here's hoping that people read it quickly!
Anyway, the series is about a girl that get's accepted into a sort of competition, called The Selection, to become the new princess of Illea, similar to the show The Bachelor. In this book the 35 girls that started in The Selection have been dwindled down 6 girls, which is called The Elite. America, the girl we come to know and love, is stuck between Maxon, the prince, and her old boyfriend from back home, Aspen. While trying to figure out who she wants to be with, she is also trying to figure out what the rebels want and why they're trying to overthrow the monarchy.. All in all, this dystopian novel is very good for anyone who likes romance as well as action and mystery. This book is good for anyone who enjoys chick-lit or young adult genres. I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
