Title: The Prince
Author: Kiera Cass
Series: The Selection (#0.5)
Published by: Harper Teen in March 2013 (ebook)
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...
Going into this book I thought we would learn about a whole new side of Maxon because I’ve heard from someone else it was about him and a girl before the Selection started. In some way, it’s true. In the first chapter we learn about a girl named Daphne whom is the daughter of the king (?) of France. It takes place a few days before the Selection starts, on Maxon’s birthday. We only hear from her for like two chapters and then it’s just about Maxon’s POV during his first meeting with America in the gardens and their introduction chat the day after. That’s it. Nothing spectacular going on.
I rated this novella 3 out of 5 stars because it’s not really anything new.
