Title: The Elite (The Selection #2)
Author: Kiera Cass
The Selection began with thirty-five girls.
Now with the group narrowed down to the six Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon's heart is fiercer than ever—and America is still struggling to decide where her heart truly lies. Is it with Maxon, who could make her life a fairy tale? Or with her first love, Aspen?
America is desperate for more time. But the rest of the Elite know exactly what they want—and America's chance to choose is about to slip away.
The Elite is the second book in The Selection series by Kiera Cass. In this book, the group of girls has been narrowed down to 6 girls. America has made it in to The Elite, but is still unsure of her feelings.
There is still a love triangle going on because America can't seem to let go of her first love, Aspen. He just so happens to be a guard at the castle so she is still able to see him. Poor Maxson has no idea that America's first love is a guard in the castle and that she has been seeing him. I know that America is having a hard time making up her mind, but it's disappointing to see her kissing both guys and leading them on.
I would be fine with either man that America decides to choose. Both guys have great qualities. I just want her to pick one once and for all. And I know this is common with books that are in the middle of the series, but I felt like there wasn't a whole lot of plot progression. Nothing really happened, besides finding out the King's true colors. Still, the book did what it intended – kept me turning the pages in hopes that something big would happen.
Despite my negative remarks about this particular book, I still adore this series. I'm really looking forward to the next one and I am hoping that America will be able to make a choice.
