Title: The Elite
Author: Kiera Cass
Series: Book 2 - The Selection
Pages: 336
Publishing: April 23rd 2013 by HarperTeen
ISBN: 0062059963


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.


A short review for a short book. I just love Cass' writing. In the second book of The Selection Series, we get to know America's true personality a little more. She becomes a strong and courageous woman who is not afraid to fight for what she believes in. She changes from a quiet stubborn girl to a girl who might be able to stand beside the ruler of the country one day. 

The Elite holds a little more drama than the last book, as America becomes forced to make a choice between her first love and a possible new love. Who will she choose? As much as I enjoyed The Elite, it became slightly repetitive at times. I thought I might have a panic attack if she didn't just make choice and end the book. But for all good things a person must wait. 

All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed The Elite and look forward to reading more of Cass' writing. I would recommend this to lovers of simple YA fiction. It is a very quick and easy read. 

Rating 4/5
