The time has come for one winner to be crowned. When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon’s heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose and how hard she’ll have to fight for the future she wants.
As the selection continued, America was became determined to do what was the reason she was there. America’s feelings toward Maxon and Aspen became an upside down event. But she was determined to know her true feelings as well as finding the reason to fight for the crown. But, the rebels became more determined to get what they wanted in the palace. It just became a difficult task to America, Maxon as well as the remaining Elites.
As I read the book, my heart was jumping and sometimes you don’t know if you want to cry or scream. The story was a combination of sweetness as well as it has a strong side like you were in the character. When it comes to the plot of the story, very well delivered and you were not able to know that you’re almost half of it. America has a self-improvement and a powerful character that if you are one of the selection you will be attract and will always say to her that she was very strong. While the characters were very easy to attract and to remember, obviously the name itself.
There was a part of the book that when I read that line, it became a convention in my mind. As America Singer said, “Perfection was my only option.” Yes, she was not perfect unlike the other elites, but she was determined to prove herself. She has flaws, dumbness and clumsiness and as readers we were aware of that. But those lines knock-out me like a rock. Everyone wants to be perfect, but America was the least to choose to be it. She love her mistakes and flaws, and she was extremely different. A very lovely story to be well-keep forever.
