    For 35 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, and leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want.

    "Enjoyable But Frustrating"

    Story
    What did you love best about The Selection?

    I really liked the main character and her transformation throughout the book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Selection?

    My favorite moment was when she told her friend to buck up and act like a queen during the first rebel attack.


    Have you listened to any of Amy Rubinate’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really, it was more interesting to listen to but did not draw on anything deep, frustration a few times but that was more of towards the characters


    Any additional comments?

    I agree with fellow reviewers in that the book ended poorly, honestly it cut off so quick that I waiting a few seconds after Amy said, "End of Book 1" assuming the book would have 2 parts and it was just the end of part one actually. It seemed an odd time to end the first book because while the book was interesting it didn't end on a high climax but seemed to be building up to something then fell short by ending the book.
