Waiting On Wednesday: The Selection

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly post, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

The Selection
by Kiera Cass
Release Date is April 24, 2012
Publisher is HarperTeen

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 the palace and compete for the heart of the 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.

This dress is stunning! Could you imagine wearing that? Of course it doesn’t look very functional for moving around . . . The premise of the book sounds great too. If a prince is involved, I’m there!

What are you waiting on?
