The Elite Book Review
Title: The Elite (The Selection, #2)

I finally read the second book in The Selection series! I am pretty sure it’s been over a year since I read the first one! The first one was just okay for me. I gave it 3/5 stars. Maybe it’s because it’s been a while since I read a dystopian novel that I really enjoyed this second story.
Nothing too huge happens in terms of the plot in this story. The Selection continues, but a winner will not be announced until the next book. America does find out more about how the current government came to be. America learns that she is not the only girl Maxon has been spending time with and the rebels continue their work to attack the kingdom.
This was a quick read for me. I enjoyed it and was able to stay engrossed in the story. I came to like and know America more as the story went on. America gets to see her family in this story and I enjoyed getting to know those characters. With the Selection narrowed down, you get to know the other girls a little better. Although I liked America as the main character, I came to wonder if she was the best choice for Maxon, as she wonders about herself. I am excited to read the third story and see how everything is all tied up!
