The Selection by Kiera Cass
Synopsis (from Waterstones):
Thirty-five beautiful girls. Thirty-five beautiful rivals! It's the chance of a lifetime and 17-year-old America Singer should feel lucky. She has been chosen for The Selection, a reality TV lottery in which the special few compete for gorgeous Prince Maxon's love. Swept up in a world of elaborate gowns, glittering jewels and decadent feasts, America is living a new and glamorous life. And the prince takes a special interest in her, much to the outrage of the others. Rivalry within The Selection is fierce and not all of the girls are prepared to play by the rules. But what they don't know is that America has a secret -- one which could throw the whole competition and change her life forever.


The first thing I need to say about this is book is - how beautiful is the cover?!
This is evidently the thing that first grabbed my attention about the book, but the synopsis is always going to be the deciding thing, and it sounds like a fantastic read! I think it's published in the UK in 56 days or something like that... according to the Waterstones website, anyway, and I can't wait to get hold of a copy! You'll definitely be seeing a review of this sometime in the summer - I'm literally bouncing off the walls with excitement right now *geek*
It's going to be a good one!

For some reason, the cover looks prettier on here. I think its the pink-ness in the back. I love it though. Gives more definition to the cover.
