Think The Bachelor meets The Hunger Games. Set in the future, a royal family rules what was once the United States of America and a caste system regulates society. The prince has come of age to find a wife and the “Selection” process begins. Enter: America Singer, a feisty, smart, and overall fantastic female role model who has been picked to participate in the Selection. A fun start to what was originally going to be a trilogy, to which Cass has decided to add two more books! — Misha D'Andrea

The Bachelor meets The Hunger Games in this Young Adult series. Set in the dystopian future America, now under the name "Illea", 35 young women must compete for the hand of the Prince. Coming from a rigid and unjust caste system, the Selected find that the competition isn't all romance and ball gowns as they face constant attacks from rebels while remaining under constant scrutiny of the public eye. A fun, fast-paced read for lovers of romance and dystopian YA.

“In this dystopian setting that overlays a futuristic society with the things we love about old-fashioned fairy tales, Cass weaves an intriguing story with the perfect balance of real-world problems and romance. America is a young, proud girl with a big heart and a bit of a temper from an impoverished family and social class,. She's a talented, self-respecting character who is great fun to follow in this fantastic Bachelor-type setting. I can't wait for the sequel!”
