Loved it, No wonder young teens love it too. I bought the next series where Maxon and America have a daughter and she picks her mate in the Selection. I haven't read that yet. After 3 books, I was done with this storyline. I may return to it one day, but I wanted to make sure I had the next part of the story in the library. Funny that in the Hunger Games, I felt like I was done with it by the last book. Both these series could be two books instead of 3, in my opinion.
Kudos, to Kiera Cass though! I was going to abandon 'The Selection' early on. It was totally worth it to stick it out.
A great idea for a plot line that appeals to teens who will love the Bachelor-style competition, and the characters have enough depth for the discerning reader. A good summer read!
