In a world where everything is arbitrated by social castes, America was born a 5, one of the lowest castes. This year, a Selection will be held to find a wife for Prince Maxon. America’s mother thought that having her daughter participate will be the key to all of their glitches but America doesn’t want to take part for one simple reason – she was secretly in love with Aspen. The only problem was that he belongs to an even lower caste and so her parents forbid her to marry him. She ends up applying for the selection, certain that she will not be one of those 35 chosen girls, so you can imagine her astonishment when she is the one chosen from her district. This is where the passion of the competition begins; complete with friendship, jealousy and of course a little sabotage.
The theme of the story was really great. I know many related it with The Bachelor, but it reminded me more of the film Miss Congeniality – the girl who does not want to be the part of the competition and hates the pretty dresses but ends up loving all of it and even become friends with some of the competitors. The dystopian component in it was also quite good – I found the history element in this book to be inspiring.
However, what really made me fall in love with this book were its characters. America’s character was so humble and kind that you couldn’t help liking her. She cares for the other competitors and even her maids. She even gave guidelines to her friend on winning over the Prince. I also found relevant the fact that, while the other girls went for the most stylish dresses, she always opted for the simplistic style that she felt most comfortable in.
Maxon was so swoon-worthy and all he wanted throughout this competition was to fall in love. I thought that he would be snobbish, but from his first meeting with America, he stole my heart.
The only snare to this book, for me, was Aspen’s character. I found him to be quite conceited at times and really didn’t understand why America had fallen in love with him. The main reason for this was possibly due to the fact that the characters had a relationship before the start of the book, so I didn’t get the chance to see their relationship grow. Far along in the story, we do get to learn how their relationship started, which made me like him a bit more. Though, I felt that the relationship between him and America was built mostly on the fact that she took care and provided for him.
Overall, I felt that this book was entertaining, vibrant and leaves you with a smile. I just could not put this book down and can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel!
