Waiting on Wednesday: The Selection by Kiera Cass

"Waiting on Wednesday" is weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine which spotlights upcoming book releases we're excited for.

Oh god just look at the amazing cover of The Selection by Kiera Cass! I do not normally go hoo-ha over a frilly dress, but this one just makes my inner girly girl come out and squeal in delight. Storylinewise the novel sounds like The Hunger Games, but with additional pretty dresses and killer high heels. Awesomeness guaranteed.

Details: Expected to be published in April 2012 by HarperTeen.

Description: 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.
