                            Goodreads Synopsis
The Selection (The Selection, #1)  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

My Review:  
I swear i feel like i have written the review to this novel over and over but can seam to find it anywhere, I think my mind is playing tricks on me.  
I enjoyed The Selection, maybe not as much as i would have liked too. I picked up this novel from Big W and read it a couple of days later not knowing much about the contraversy it had caused through out the blogging community, no i am not getting in to it, here anyway.  I am glad i brought and read it before i found out about all the hoopla because i came in to  reading this book with an undemaged opinion of the Author and that helps me give a non biast review of what i really felt of the book. 
Kiera has a writing style that i am looking forward to evolving over time. 
While The Selection wasnt as gripping as i hoped it would be from the description on the back it still had me, It wasn't great, but it was good, and i will pick up book two to see what happened. 
I love prince Maxon, America annoys me and Aspen, well, i hate ranting, lets just say, I'm Team Maxon. 

I enjoyed the back story Kiera created about 'old america' in the futuristic distopian novel. I am honestly scared of distopian but this is a good place for me to start and aclimatise my self to the different futuristic type stuff. 

All in all a light read, see if your library has it before you buy it, it's not for every one,
