* The time has come for one winner to be crowned.

When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon's heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose—and how hard she'll have to fight for the future she wants.

My Review:

The ending is pretty much what I've expected so I'm very happy with it. With the turn of events and everything, it was pretty good. I've been dying to buy this book right after I've finished reading the second one. It was worth the wait. I love how America grew up and how she managed to get over Aspen. And also, I felt Maxon's heartbreak when he accidentally saw America and aspen together. But because of his love for America, he's ready to give up his life for Aspen. See that? Maxon's my kind of guy. What kind of girl America would be if she hadn't chosen Maxon? Gosh! I can't literally imagine my life without Maxon Calix Schreave. Clever. HAHA! But yes, I enjoyed every page of it. Especially the war and how, one of the girls is one if the Southern rebels and how America's dad's one of it too. See that? You must've thinking that I'm brutal or something for liking that part but, you've gotta read it for you to be able to find out why I really liked it. Lol. How clever of me. But yeah! All in all, I super loved this book that I read it for one whole day with a cup of tea and without putting it down. Not even once.



Now, I'm Excited for "The Heir"!!! Ahhhh!!!
