When I posted about reading The Selection by Kiera Cass, many of you said you felt the story sounded interesting and that you would like to hear if I read the second book. Well… I did! This week the boys and I went to the library and the first book I picked up for myself was The Elite.
If you want to refresh your memory about what happens in The Selection, you can read my post here.
35 girls arrived to steal the heart of the prince, and now only 6 remain. America Singer still doesn’t know what she wants to do. Who should she love? Does she stay and try to become the princess or leave and go back to her first love?
America went into the selection feeling that the whole process was wrong. She envisioned the prince picking based on looks, politics and/or other reasons than love. She saw that many of the girls involved were more in getting the crown than loving the man. But that all changed the more she got to know Maxon. Now she doesn’t know what to think.
America learns more about how Illea comes to be as well as why they now live in a caste system. What does she do with this new found information? Will it change how she feels about Maxon and the possibility of becoming a princess?
I can tell you this…. I’m ready to head back to the library and pick up the next book in the series!
