Firstly, I love the cover of the book, it is one the main attention grabber before I read the summary. And to be honest before I even read the summary, I got the book.
My emotions after reading this book.......
I was a bit predictable but, still enjoyed it and it's a story about a chance of life with the main character,America Singer not wanting any part of it. Yet, she is still picked to be a apart of the Selection. Hence the title of the book.I like how they portrayed America. She is apart of caste # 5 who are artists and singers etc. Hence, the name yet again. But Aspen was disagreeable, he had a lot pride and a bit too clingy. Geez!
Lastly, I highly recommend this book for those of you who love those cliche movies, a light and enjoyable read.
