Thirty-five beautiful girls. Thirty-five beautiful rivals!

It's the chance of a lifetime and 17-year-old America Singer should feel lucky. She has been chosen for The Selection, a reality TV lottery in which the special few compete for gorgeous Prince Maxon's love. Swept up in a world of elaborate gowns, glittering jewels and decadent feasts, America is living a new and glamorous life. And the prince takes a special interest in her, much to the outrage of the others.

Rivalry within The Selection is fierce and not all of the girls are prepared to play by the rules. But what they don't know is that America has a secret -- one which could throw the whole competition! and change her life forever.

    Comments about The Selection:

    A book you'll not regret reading. The selection is just like a fairy tale, or is it?
    There's so many twist and turns you'll have mixed feelings throughout the whole book. Even my mum loved it!

      A little slow at the beginning, but once the Selection begins, it's drama, romance and action. A quick read for dystopian & romance fans :)

      Comments about The Selection:

      It was a well written book. I admit I'm a bit of of sucker for books like this, and I bought the book to add to my collection. But upon reading it, I realised how well written it is. America Singer is strong willed but still very indecisive which was a bit of a contradiction.

      I was told to read this by my younger sister, who had read the first 3 books before I could start. I'm glad I was sucked into this book and series!
