Title: The Elite (The Selection #2)
Author: Kiera Cass
Published: April, 2013 by HarperTeen
Purchase: The Book Depository
Thirty-five girls came to the palace to compete in the Selection. All but six have been sent home. And only one will get to marry Prince Maxon and be crowned princess of Iléa.
America still isn’t sure where her heart lies. When she’s with Maxon, she’s swept up in their new and breathless romance, and can’t dream of being with anyone else. But whenever she sees Aspen standing guard around the palace, and is overcome with memories of the life they planned to share. With the group narrowed down to the Elite, the other girls are even more determined to win Maxon over—and time is running out for America to decide.
Just when America is sure she’s made her choice, a devastating loss makes her question everything again. And while she’s struggling to imagine her future, the violent rebels that are determined to overthrow the monarchy are growing stronger and their plans could destroy her chance at any kind of happy ending.
Final Thoughts: The Elite was a good continuation of the story we left behind in The Selection. While it didn’t bring anything new to the table, it was definitely on par with its predecessor and kept me entertained enough to finish the book – which is always a good thing! I will be reading the next (and final?) installment as I’m genuinely interested in how Keira Cass is going to tie this love triangle up!
