urlIn the book, The Selection by Kiera Cass, America, the main character of the book, was forced by her mother and her secret boyfriend to enter the selection.  It is a competition between all girls who wanted to enter for a chance to be one of 35 girls to win the prince’s love. America was one of the 35 girls that made the selection.  That meant she had to leave her boyfriend that no one knows about. When she meets the prince she becomes one of his favorites. When she becomes an elite with five other girls, she finds out that her old secret boyfriend has became a guard in the castle.  At the end, she start’s trying to make a decision on who she is going to pick, the prince or the guard.

I like this book because it made me interested and excited about who America is going to pick. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes love stories.
