I've been wanting to read this one for a long time based on the summary. After seeing the cover last week (Um, I glomped love all over it on Monday, as you might recall), I want this even more! Kingdoms! Princes! Dystopian! Yes!! I want, I want, I WANT!!

...Is it April yet?

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.

What are you anxiously waiting for this Wednesday?
