    America Singer already had her heart with someone, however she and Aspen were the only ones who knew that. America thought he was the one, until one day a letter came. It was a letter giving her the opportunity to sign up for the drawing of the Selection. The Selection would draw the names of 35 girls. These girls would all compete for the heart of Prince Maxon, and at the end of the competition, there would be one girl who would win his heart, and the crown. America didn't want to enter, however her family wanted her to. When she went to the treehouse to secretly meet up with Aspen, he told her she should enter. Not only that, but they broke up. America was heartbroken. Later, her mom said that if she entered she could keep half of her salary. Not even if she was picked, only if she entered. America knew that many other girls would enter, so she decided that she would enter. She did not believe she would get picked. However, she was wrong. The rest is the beginning of her story. I rate this book 5/5, and I enjoyed it a lot. It made me want to read the next book to find out what would happen. I recommend this book to people who enjoyed the Hunger Games series, and those who enjoy dystopian and utopian novels.

    This book is about a girl named Isabella who is dealing with and who has a best friend named Imani who is also dealing with racism. This book was very interesting, and it also was heartbreaking in many parts of it. Sadly, racism is an issue that people still deal with today and this book showed what the main character, Isabelle, had to go through. Isabelle's parents are also divorced and she struggles going back and forth. Her parents also have trouble agreeing with each other, and sometimes Isabelle feels like she's two people. This book is really good, and I rate it 5/5. I recommend it to people who enjoy reading books about problems that are still present in today's society.

    There were only six girls left in the competition. America Singer was one of them. She thought Maxon was what she wanted, however when Aspen appears at the palace as a soldier, America is unable to ignore her emotions towards him. She has trouble deciding between Maxon and Aspen. You could say she was having her own Selection. Will she decide her heart belongs with Maxon, or with who it always was with, Aspen? I rate this book 5/5, and recommend it to people who like the Hunger Games series. I also recommend it to people who enjoy dystopian and utopian novels.

    Twelve year old Percy Jackson gets kicked out of all the schools he attends. But at one of his schools, something strange happens on a field trip. He was getting mad at Nancy Bobofit, a bully who keeps picking on Percy and his bestfriend Grover. He was approaching her but Grover held him back, saying he wouldn't want to get in trouble again. Percy didn't do anything, but a huge wave coming from the fountain where Nancy was sitting hit her, and she was soaked. She automatically pointed at Percy and said that he did it when he didn't. Then, Percy's least favorite teacher Mrs. Dodds tells him to follow her. She tells him that he was being trouble again, and Percy decided not to argue or things could get nasty. But then she tells him to follow her into the museum. What happens next is history. I recommend this book to people who like the Harry Potter series, or if you want to learn about Greek mythology. I rate this book 5/5.

    Eadlyn Schreave was born seven minutes before her brother, Ahren, beating him to crown. People have been recently mad about the removal of the castes, and to distract them, Maxon and America tell Eadlyn she is going to have her own Selection. The first time a girl has ever held her own Selection. Eadlyn is against the idea, however, they convince her to go along with it. She is convinced she will not find someone she likes, as she is very independent. Will this change as the competition goes on? I rate this book 5/5, and recommend it to people who enjoyed the other Selection books, the Hunger Games series, or people who like dystopian or utopian novels.
