YA Fiction:"Selection" by Kiera Cass~A Cover Pre-View and Snap-Shot Summary!

Published by:  Harper Teen
Pages:  336
Genre: YA Fiction

Cover Rating:
Gorgeous dress takes up the cover, doesn't it?  What could be more enticing and more
beauty pageant? And, note the crown above the title of the book with the author's name
as the "selected" queen.  The icy/mirrored reflections gives us the hint there's
a fantasy factor here.  Rated:  A

Summary Snapshot:
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.

Quickie Review:
“Reality T.V. meets dystopian fairy tale in Kiera Cass’s delightful debut. Charming, captivating, and filled with just the right amount of swoon!” (Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of Paranormalcy )

This book will be released in April !!

I'm looking forward to reading it.  We'll have to be on the look-out...
