Now let’s go take a look at it…
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 a palace and compete for the heart of 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.

I was thinking that maybe the darker AU post that Debb and I did a couple of weeks ago, might have been too much for some people. *eyes Annie, who ran from the room* So I thought I would rec a story that is more canon-like, for people who like reading about the more “sparkly” vampires, not the scary ones. LOL
This is a very special AU story, because while it is definitely about Edward and Bella’s relationship, it is also about Bella and Charlie’s relationship. I feel the need to place an angst warning here. It also won “Best Overall” from the Vampie Awards in 2011. It’s completed!
