America spent a chunk of the book flip flopping between Maxon and Aspen, between certainty and uncertainty of her future with Maxon and whether or not she wanted one at all. This was understandable, but frustrating nonetheless. But then, big things happen, things that give us insight into the two guys and suddenly, I was rooting for her to go home and abandon them both.
The story opened up a bit, embracing the Selection and delving deeper into the politics of their country. I gobbled up this book so fast that I was left scrambling to get the next in the series. Normally, I like to take my time reading, picturing everything perfectly in my head as the story unfolds, but the drama in this book took firm hold of me and carried me to the end much quicker than I would have liked. So...I guess that means I'll be reading it again!
