This was told in Maxson's point of view starting a few days before the Selection was to begin. I enjoyed reading about how that process actually started. In the real book, the girls are told it is all random I believe. I find out differently here. Then you read about how the prince is nervous and how his true feelings are for each girl as he meets them.
The cons however are it's too quick of a read for $2. I got this at my library. I'd probably pay $1 max since its only 55 pages and took me about an hour. Second, the author repeats the exact dialog that is in the original book. Then states how the prince feels about it. I had to skim a lot since I'd already read the Selection twice.
I still enjoyed the story, learned something new about the characters, but I am not sure it's worth the purchase. Library book -definitely.
Before thirty-five girls were chosen to compete in the Selection...
A good deal of thought was put into exactly which girls would compete. For anyone who wondered how the girls were chosen, or more specifically, who chose them: this is your time!
The Prince not only gives readers a glimpse into Maxon's head during the weeks leading up to the Selection(which would have probably been sufficient for any member of Team Maxon--come on, he's adorable), but into the inner-workings of the palace and the royal family as well. After all, Maxon's whole life has been spent here with his family and the constant reminder that the Selection will be the only way for him to find a bride. Even if he had fallen in love with someone else. . .
It's impossible not to read this in one sitting. Maxon's thoughts are as sweet and well-intentioned as his words and as the Selection begins, we finally get Maxon's perspective of the first time America came crashing into his life...
ok so first off it is a wonderful little spin off to the first book in the series 'The Selection' and it was acctually a lot different to what I was expecting but in a good way... untill it ended! it stopped half way through the story and it stopped rather suddenly aswel and it left me wanting... well... the second half of the story it was really dissapointing at the end. it is worth a read if you are totally into the series but be perpared for the dissapiontment you will feel when it ends
