I really wanted to give this a 4, but the main characters just plain annoyed me in the book. America is being all - who to choose, Aspen or Maxon? Aspen is being stringed along and so are the other Selection girls. Maxon feels it okay to make out with girls who he doesn't like Celeste? (gasp!) And both are hiding their insecurities from each other. I think I only liked the final chapter fully. Oh, and the King, what to say about him? He is such a d-bag!
And will someone tell us what is going on with the rebels? From two books it's all surprise attacks by the Northern and Southern rebels. There is only outlawing and dropping of caste as response by the Crown.
