Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Description: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.
- Kind of sounds like a modern retelling of Esther, with a few exceptions.
- Distopia! Who doesn't like distopia?
- It just sounds like a great book. There will be romance (possible love triangle), action, betrayal, and maybe a happy ending (?).
- Interesting how the cover looks like there are different girls in the room, but they are all one girl in the same dress in a room of mirrors.
