A novella from The Selection series. This was kind of disturbing at first. This is told from the POV of the Queen Amberly, Prince Maxton's mother. It was hard to take her submission to the one-day-to-be King. This is her selection story.
But then I read in goodreads, someone say that not all relationships were healthy in real life and this story wasn't meant to be a guide to relationships.
Looking at it from that way, I did find it helpful to see how the King and Queen before Maxton and America came to be the people they are.
If you like the Selection and can understand that this isn't a model of healthy love, then it is interesting to get the Queen's and King's POV.
What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.
