Waiting on Wednesday: The Selection by Kiera Cass

This is Breaking the Spine's Waiting for Wednesday, where bloggers post about a book they just can't wait to get their hands on! 

  The Selection by Kiera Cass
April 24th 2012

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.

Yet another new book I can't wait to get my hands on.  I'll admit that the first thing that really grabbed me about this book was the cover.  I love how she looks like a model in the center but is shy and unassuming in the reflections!  The dystopian-sounding blurb clinched it for me, I've gotta have this book!
