Waiting on Wednesday [19]: The Selection

****"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.****

The Selection by Kiera Cass
Expected Publication Date: April 24th, 2012
Publisher: HarperTeen
Page Count: 336
Preorder from Amazon: The Selection
For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in the palace and compete for the heart of the gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself- and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.
Why I Can't Wait: Well, I immediately saw DYSTOPIA on this book's Goodreads page and when I knew it was part of the 2012 DAC I was hooked! Plus the cover of it is freakin gorgeous! I love the blue dress, I'm so over the red ones.
