The Selection: A Writing Competition

For those of you who love this novel, there are many books in The Selection series by Kiera Cass and there are also many chances to write good stories inspired by it!



The Selection is a novel by Kiera Cass about 35 girls selected from a country where you are judged by your talents and money. They enter this "selection" for the chance of a lifetime, a chance to win Prince Maxon's heart.


Every girls dream right? But for America, it's not what she wants. She's in love with someone else, who's in a caste lower than her, and it's a disgrace to marry into a lower caste. So she leaves for the castle, but not for the love, but rather for the money and the food. Except when she does she falls in love. 


For those who haven't heard of this awesome book, read the book blurb on goodreads.
