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 a palace and compete for the heart of 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Reality TV meets dystopian fairy tale in Kiera Cass’ delightful debut. Charming, captivating, and filled with just the right amount of swoon!”

    Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of Paranormalcy

  • “A cross between The Hunger Games (minus the bloodsport) and The Bachelor (minus the bloodsport)…[Cass] deftly builds the chemistry between America and Maxon, while stoking the embers of America’s first, forbidden love.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “An engrossing tale reminiscent of Shannon Hale’s Princess Academy and Ally Condie’s Matched. Fairy-tale lovers will lose themselves in America’s alternate reality.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Cass’ immensely readable debut novel is a less drastic Hunger Games (2008), with elaborate fashion and trappings… The fast-paced action and comforting predictability of the love story will have readers gasping for the [sequel].”


  • A New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Sandra Barth | 2/13/2014

    " I loved the cover of this book immediately but I thought I wouldn't like the story. But it was the opposite: I admire it and read it in 2 days..simply could't stop reading! And I can't wait to read the second book of this trilogy! The characters are great, I totally fell in love with the prince..the only negative thing I noticed was the fact that I knew from the beginning how the story would go on and I was right with my predictions..but that didn't bother me at all because there are still things after the last chapter which seem mysterious and force me to read the next book. "

    " Funny- I hate TVs "The Bachelor" but this dystopian "Bachelor" is oddly appealing. America is an amusing character... Love her interaction with Maxon. "

    " I will admit I did have my doubts about this book. But it was suprisingly good. American wasn't stupid which was a big one for me. But she also wasn't overly confident and was wait for it....HONEST. Well until she saw Aspen....but she was true to her feelings about Maxon and was willing to let herself grow. I liked the plot and thought it was interesting and after I finished the book it left me with some questions which is good if there is a sequel (which thank god there is) I really liked Maxon allot and thought he was kind and real. I liked Aspen too at the beggining of the book though I started to doubt him as a character towards the end. I am looking forward toand eagerly awaiting the sequel. Kudos to you Keira Cass! And a thank you to my sister for kinldy allowing me to read this book nd then agreeing with me when I said I hated a certain character or enjoyed a certain character. (This may be the same sort of fan-girl-ing we did for the Luxen series ;P) "

    " I did not expect much from this book but I loved it. I absolutely loved it. Only problem is that it ended! "
