The One by Kiera Cass is the last novel in The Selection trilogy. Only four girls remain for the hopes to be chosen as the next Princess by Prince Maxon. America needs to come to terms with how she truly feels about Maxon and if she wants to live the rest of her life as a Princess.
I’ve read many reviews that bash this series because it reminds them of the Bachelor. I guess I’m a sucker for reality TV drama because I really enjoyed this series despite the aggravation with the choices Cass took.
It aggravated me not knowing what Maxon was really feeling and if he favored America from the others. I believe that’s what the author intended, for readers to questions the decisions of the characters. For them to get angry when something didn’t go a certain way. It certainly entertained me and had me rooting for America all the way.
I give The One 4 out of 5 stars.
For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.
But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.
Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself—and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.
Kiera Cass’s The Elite is a must-read for fans of dystopian fiction, fairy tales, and reality TV. This sequel to The Selection will enchant teens who love Divergent and The Bachelor.
In America Singer’s world, a bride is chosen for the prince through an elaborate televised competition. In the second book of the Selection series, America is one of only six girls lef tin the running. But is it Prince Maxon—and life as the queen—she wants? Or is it Aspen, her first love?
The Elite delivers the adventure, glamour, political intrigue, and romance readers of The Selection expect, and continues the love triangle that captivated them.
