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.

The book is about a girl called 'america'. One day she get's a letter to enter the selection. Her boyfriend wants her to enter because he Thinks she'll get a better future if she gets chosen. She's surprised when she gets chosen and she is send to the palace to participate In the game for prince maxon. She gets to know the prince better and they are becoming friends. Because of some issues at home she doesn't want to get send back. The prince decides to keep her for as long as possible. Eventually he has feelings for America. America still loves her 'boyfriend' and wants some time to think. Of course also other girls are still fighting to become the prince's wife and America doesn't know where her heart belongs.

Suzie’s just a regular gal with an irregular gift: when she has sex, she stops time. One day she meets Jon and it turns out he has the same ability. And sooner or later they get around to using their gifts to do what we’d ALL do: rob a couple banks. A bawdy and brazen sex comedy for comics begins here!

Review : 
First of all I want to say that this was a book that I didn't expect to be like it was. It was very interesting to read and cought myself saying 'What?!' too many times. It's a very fun read but not for the faint hearted.

This book is about a girl called suzie and she has a special ability. every time she has sex time stops around her. one day she meets Jon and he has the same ability. they become lovers and kinda have sex all the time. They one day decide to rob a bank because Suzie needs funds for her local library. they both see no harm in doing it. But soon a group of people called the 'sex police' finds out Jon and Suzie have sex to rob the bank and try to stop them.
