It's every girl's dream to be a princess, right? Not for America Singer. She's only wanted to save enough money to marry her true love, Aspen. He may be in a lower caste, but he's all she's ever wanted. Then the call goes out to every girl to put their name and face in for a selection to be the wife of Prince Maxon. Urged by her parents and even her boyfriend, America puts in her name, knowing that she will never be chosen. And then she is.
So I will admit that I did not want to read this book because of the cover. Girls in prom dresses, sigh, no thanks. But I have to say that I enjoyed getting to know the characters and was interested in some of the plot twists. So I decided to pick up book number two. As far as dystopia goes, it's not the Hunger Games, but it does have some exciting scenes in it.
