The Selection, by Kiera Cass

The Selection300 years in the future, the world has been reshaped by war, and society reformed by a rigid caste system. A ruling family has emerged, and a new princess is chosen in elimination style, televised for entertainment. America Singer is chosen from her district to live at the palace and vie for the heart of Prince Maxon. At first, she resents this intrusion into her plans for the future, but she comes to see that perhaps life is more complicated than anyone can anticipate. Although the palace is beautiful, the competition can be fierce, and there is always the threat of a rebel attack, which can and does happen at any time. Part dystopian novel, part fairy tale, The Selection is a fast read, and it’ll leave you wanting more, which will be out next spring in the form of “The Elite”.
But for those of you who can’t wait until the next book, there will also soon be a TV show! Check out http://www.theselection.org/!
