The Elite- Kiera Cass
The kingdom has gotten a lot smaller. 29 people smaller to be exact! Six girls remain in the selection. The Elite. Marlee, Kris, Natalie, Elise, Celeste, and America. Maxon and America spend more time together it seems like in each page of the book. Maxon invites all the girls family over for dinner one night. At the dinner America dances with both Aspen and Maxon. At the dinner America basically tells Aspen they will never be together again and the dances with Maxon. This is a SPOILER Maxon basically tells America they are going to get married! SPOILER OVER The next day there is an elimination. Or there was supposed to be anyway. When America wakes up she know there is bad news. There are only five girls. SPOILER Marlee was caught with Carter Woodworker which is against the rules. Marlee and Carter are whipped for there consequences, and castes as eights. America runs through the crowd trying to reach her best friend. Who Maxon was forced to place the punishment of whippings SPOILER OVER. The 6th girl was gone. Gone forever. America starts thinking about her and Aspen. And if they were even caught holding hands for the slightest second, they could both die. Maxon wouldn't do that though. Right?The elite is a book with a choice. The choice is made, but will it come true. Will the girl have to take his word for it. Will they get married. Is his words more powerful than a ring! America loves her maids, they are a blessing. And quite good friends. Anyone who read the first book knows America is a stubborn person. She won't rest until she gets what she wants. America and Kris are assigned to welcome to the Italians to Illea. America becomes good friends with Nicoletta. Nicoletta talks to America about the people of Illea are unhappy. Unhappy about jobs, caste, and the rebels. Nicoletta tells America if she does become Queen Italy and Illea could become good friends. And Italy would support Illea. Maxon leaves with the King to take care of business. America realizes how difficult it is to have Maxon not in the palace. Rebels start targeting the selection girls families. Threating to kill them. America gets ready to go home, at least for a while. She thinks back to he times with Maxon. She can't go, she won't go.
Okay, so the selection is my favorite series of all time! But I have to say this was my least favorite book in the series. That doesn't mean it's a terrible book! No, no, no! It is amazing! And is still in my top 20 all time favorites! I get asked a lot what's my least favorite, and I answer honestly The Elite. And for some reason everyone think that means it's a terrible book! It NOT! Please do not think that! It's one of the best books I've ever read! Okay, now that we got that out of the way! I'm giving this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 Stars. I did take of one star because, I can't give every book give stars, and I wish we would have seen a little bit more of how Maxon interacted with the other girls! Okay, so first the cover! Who doesn't love it! No one! I loved the action in this book, even though it was really sad! It was fun to see America interact with some people outside of Illea like the Italians. And of course it's always fun to read about Maxon and America! Over all I loved this book! It was SOO good! I am very dearly attached to America! Sometimes I really to wish I lived in Illea 😋! Please please please go out and read this series! I promise I does not disappoint!
