Title: The One
Author: Kiera Cass
Series: Book 3 - The Selection
Pages: 323
Publishing: May 6th 2014 by HarperTeen
ISBN: 0062059998


The time has come for one winner to be crowned.

When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon's heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose—and how hard she'll have to fight for the future she wants.


I'll be totally honest... after finishing The Elite, I wasn't sure that I wanted to continue reading on to the third book. Thank goodness I did. Just like the first two books in the series, The One would definitely be considered a guilty pleasure. I found myself really enjoying the book, but I felt a little strange telling my friends what I was reading. Oh well, I read it and I loved it! 

Cass continues the constant drama and love triangle mess until you're begging for answers. America is the same head-strong protagonist, but in The One, she begins to really have her own voice and she begins responding to difficult situations with well thought out plans instead of her impulsive attitude that we saw in the previous two books. 

As always, there are parts that I did not like, but I still found myself falling in love with the characters and how they interacted with each other. It was a fun, quick and easy read that I really enjoyed. I would recommend this series to lovers of romantic young adult novels with the small warning that The One can be a little cheesy at times. But lets be honest, what young adult romance isn't a little cheesy at times? Enjoy! 

Rating 3/5
