Thirty-five beautiful girls. Thirty-five beautiful rivals‚e¶

It‚e(tm)s the chance of a lifetime and 17-year-old America Singer should feel lucky. She has been chosen for The Selection, a reality TV lottery in which the special few compete for gorgeous Prince Maxon‚e(tm)s love.

Swept up in a world of elaborate gowns, glittering jewels and decadent feasts, America is living a new and glamorous life. And the prince takes a special interest in her, much to the outrage of the others.

Rivalry within The Selection is fierce and not all of the girls are prepared to play by the rules. But what they don‚e(tm)t know is that America has a secret ‚e" one which could throw the whole competition‚e¶ and change her life forever.
