"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine , that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Title: The Selection
Author: Kiera Cass
Expected Release Date: April 24th 2012
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.
This one's been garnering much attention lately, so I think I'll add to it - THE DRESS IS SO FREAKING GORGEOUS. I.WANT.IT. Oh, and I LOVE the name, America! It reminds me of Ugly Betty - (I think the actresses' name is America?) The plot sounds intriguing as well, but even if the plot sucked, I think I'm happy to buy a copy just for the cover!
