Although I was hoping by this point, America would truly be focused on one man, I still cannot put this series down.

At the start of the book only six remain, and America is the underdog in the public's eye. I mean after all, she was a five. And although she never felt like an underdog before, Prince Maxon is no longer paying as much attention to her, and is showering some of the others with it. While she knows it isn't fair to be jealous, she is.

On top of that, she has Aspen problems as well. He has made it clear that he does not want to lose her, loves her, and he will fight for her no matter what. With the lack of attention from Maxon, it is tempting for her to fall back into his arms, but dangerous. In fact, it is considered treason and is punishable by death, which one of America's friends can attest to.

Maxon is aware of America's withdrawal too, and while he claims she is still "the one" for him, his actions with the other ladies does not prove it. Just when America is ready to call it quits and make her grand exit, Maxon makes a sacrifice for her she just cannot ignore. The novel ends with her being allowed to stay as the numbers dwindle, but with harsher conditions and the loss of Maxon's trust.

I honestly cannot wait for the next book to come out. I 100% team Maxon, and I hope he wins her heart in the next novel, for good!

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.
