The Sister's Say:  An ending worth reading!

The Selection changed America Singer's life in ways she never could have imagined. Since she entered the competition to become the next princess of Illéa, America has struggled with her feelings for her first love, Aspen—and her growing attraction to Prince Maxon. Now she's made her choice . . . and she's prepared to fight for the future she wants.

Find out who America will choose in The One, the enchanting, beautifully romantic third book in the Selection series!

If you have been disappointed by the third book in most trilogies, then you will be delighted to read THE ONE. America is now determined to win The Selection, a contest to choose the Prince’s bride. In a crazy mix of Cinderella, The Hunger Games, and The Bachelor, Cass has blended the perfect ingredients to keep you turning those pages to see the result of the “season finale”!

When I read the first book, I loved it.  Then the second became my favorite. But now the final book has stepped up to epitomize its title.  I thought America was daring in the first two, but Cass constantly surprised me with each rebellious act America committed. I loved being surprised, and while I was cheering her on, at the same time my mind was screaming, “Oh no, don’t do that!”
But my absolute favorite part was the letters from Maxom to America—his insecurities about love were both humorous and poignant and the perfect romantic touch to an awesome ending. I can’t tell you more for fear of spoilage, but the end was definitely worth the wait.

America and Maxom definitely won my heart! And, Kiera Cass, you definitely won this reader’s following!
