The Selection by Kiera Cass sounded a lot like an episode of The Bachelor, so I was a little hesitant to pick it up as I have never been a fan of the show. However, I have been on a dystopia reading spree so I thought I would give it a chance, and I am so glad I did. It's more of a bloodless dystopia as the major oppression is a fairly strict caste system, that grew out of the remains of the United States.
Sixteen year old America is chosen to be on The Selection, a contest where the Prince will chose the woman he wants to marry. Unlike every other girl America doesn't want to be there, because she is already in love with someone else. As she gets to know the Prince, she realizes that he is actually a decent guy and she begins to enjoy her time at the Palace. She also begins to realize that there are many more problems facing their country than the general population knows about. These problems give hints of exciting things to come in the sequel, which will be out early next year.
