Before thirty-five girls were chosen to compete in the Selection…
Before Aspen broke America’s heart…
There was another girl in Prince Maxon’s life…
I really enjoyed this novella! It was a fun, quick read and I liked reading from Maxon’s perspective. This novella is told in chapters, and each chapter is a different event. There are a few set before The Selection takes place and a few set during The Selection. The downfall is, I don’t feel like it really told me anything I didn’t already know. There were maybe a few details that were hinted at in The Selection or things that I had guessed. Other than that, there really wasn’t any new information.
That being said, I did enjoy reading about how Maxon was feeling during some of the interactions from the first book and learning a little bit about him. If you’re interested in reading from Prince Maxon’s perspective, then I’d recommend you pick this up.
