The Selection by Kiera Cass

“True love is usually the most inconvenient kind”


An epic battle between young love. The Selection is set in a world where society is set into different castes from 1 (royalty) to 8 (servants). America, a 5, has her life figured out. She is in love with a boy from 6 and everything couldn’t be more perfect, until she is drafted for the Selection. Now America is put in front of two paths – Stay with the boy from home where everything is familiar and comforting or leave everything, including your entire way of life, and start a new life in a place you are slowly becoming attached too with a boy who is nothing you expected him to be. An internal battle to find yourself between the world you were raised and an exciting new way of life.

The Selection is a perfect mix of a dystopian world and classic romance – the perfect read for both girly-girls and tom-boys alike.
