The Selection - Kiera Cass

There were a lot of great things about this book. I really liked America. It was interesting to see someone who gets the chance of a life time but is initially freaked out. She felt very real to me. I was interested by the love choices in her life, although the final turn was a little annoying to me. It felt like one of the guys was getting pushed forward just to up the ante.

The one big problem I had was that by the end nothing was resolved. Was there a lot of interesting things going on? Yeah, but nowhere near enough that this novel should end halfway through. A lot of the ending cliff hangers were a little forced. I'm hoping that there are some significant non-romantic things coming up in the near future to make a whole new book worth it.
