The Selection

by Kiera Cass

35 girls. 1 crown. The competition of a lifetime.
(from cover)

Yes, folks, it’s The Bachelor for young adults. Of course, it takes place in the future, in a dystopic America.

America Singer is selected to compete for Prince Maxon’s hand in marriage. The Selection is a blessing and curse for the young woman. It is an opportunity to improve her station in life. But it is a competition for marriage, and America already has a loved one, Aspen.

Ah, the clichéd love triangle! What will be the next trend in YA lit? Cuz this one’s wearing a little thin.

Still, if you enjoy watching The Bachelor (and I do), you will enjoy reading The Selection.
