The time has come for one winner to be crowned.
When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon's heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose—and how hard she'll have to fight for the future she wants.
Again, Kiera Cass writes another amazing addition to The Selection series!
I really enjoyed this one, as I have all the others. I feel like America grew out of her indecisiveness which I’m glad because that was really starting to get on my nerves. This one also had quite a few twists and turns in this one as well to spice it up a bit, and I didn’t anticipate any of that so it was all a bit of a surprise.
The only thing is that it didn’t really live up to my expectations. Considering the meltdown my friend had I was expecting something a lot bigger, so while I was reading even though things were getting intense, I was waiting for something even bigger to happen. But we have decided that I am just more “emotionally stable” than she is.
Having said all of that, I think this was a fantastic way to end the story. I would have liked a little bit more of America and Maxon. Especially since they spent the majority of the book going back and forth, and who would have thought Maxon could be so spiteful!
Overall, this series has to be one of the best series I have read (I haven’t read that many book series). It definitely didn’t feel like a dystopian and I really loved the world building. The whole concept of the population being ranked by a caste number was so interesting to me, and the Northern Rebels and the information you find out about that was just great. I wouldn’t recommend this to someone who doesn’t like romance books though because that was the overall theme of the book.
I was going to originally give this book an 8.5 however, I think it definitely deserves a 9 simply because of the fact that I cannot stop thinking about it.

Would recommend to fans of: The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot. This book, especially the parts with the maids (who I loved), reminded me so much of The Princess Diaries. Also, I’m not sure of anything else to compare it to, but if anyone has any recommendations let me know!
