Taking place in the future, we follow American Singer, a sixteen-year old girl, who is given the ultimate chance of a lifetime. The kingdom has offered thirty-five girls a spot to potentially marry Prince Maxon. American Singer is one of the thirty-five that is chosen, but unlike her peers who would kill for this part, she is unhappy. She cannot bear to think of leaving her lover, Ashton, for some man she doesn’t know at all. However, things start to change when she meets Prince Maxon in real life.
The Selection is essentially The Bachelor, but in book form and for teens. This is probably one of my favorite books of all time. It has action, romance, plot, fun characters, pretty much everything you could want in a book. I have read a lot of romance novels and most of them don’t have an interesting plot, but this book does. So even if you aren’t too into romance, this book still has a lot of action and comfort characters that you can focus on. Also if you enjoy this book, there are two more books in the series, plus a spinoff.
