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 left in 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.


I loved how America actually had to weigh her love between Aspen and Maxon. And in this book, she wasn’t as popular as she was in the previous book. I think the point of this book is to show her true self, which is actually, in my opinion, AMAZING, but in front of the king? I don’t think so. And then, there’s the fact that she might be a little too late while she was busy thinking who she should go with.

In this book, it showed that America Singer has finally grown up. She’s no longer the girl who forever brings up her lower castes every time she argue with people. And for the first time, I liked her even better than the first book. Also, this book actually showed about the lives of the other Elites, and that made me more interested. I mean, those girls have quite an unfair advantage in this competition (since Aspen has made his feelings quite clear), and I want to know that even if they don’t make it into the end, they’re still happy with someone else, or some other kind of life.

I was totally sad though, because I wanted the next book immediately HAHAHA. But it’s okay, the boyfriend has promised to buy for me that soon, so whoopwhoop!
