The One (The Section #3)

Goodreads Summary 

The highly anticipated conclusion to Kiera Cass's #1 New York Times bestselling Selection series, The One will captivate readers who love dystopian YA fiction and fairy tales. The One is the perfect finale for fans who have followed America's whirlwind romance since it began--and a swoon-worthy read for teens who have devoured Veronica Roth's Divergent, Ally Condie's Matched, or Lauren Oliver's Delirium.
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!

My Thoughts
I loved this series. I initially fell in love with the covers...I mean who wouldn't, but the story quickly became just as intriguing.
 The Selection was like The Bachelor meets period piece for high schoolers. It was an interesting concept to say the least. Our lead character is America. She's a young girl who is secretly in love with her neighbour. They are from different caste systems, so they aren't supposed to be together. Suddenly The Selection is announced. Prince Maxon is to be married and in order for him to find his wife all the young girls in town submit thier photos for a chance to compete to win his heart. America doesn't want anything to do with it, but her family and oddly her boyfriend do. They enter her and she is selected. The Elite and The One continue from there.

The One has America really vying for Maxon's heart. She realizes that she wants him (ok she knew that before, but it was complicated.) and she will do everything she can to win him.

You really get to know the other girls in this one. You feel for them and come to love them....even Celeste. The Northern rebels were big in this one too and I loved that.

Overall I adored The One and the series as a whole. Check it out!!
