Such a terrible message for young girls. Fight for a man's affection amongst other girls vying for his affection even if you said this was against everything you stood for. ( )

Couldn't put this book down! There are a lot of very typical YA themes and you'll notice plots from other stories, but it's such a guilty pleasure book. Many girls would love to be a princess and can probably relate to the main character, America. There is a romantic love triangle, suspense, and a poor girl being given the chance of a lifetime. Probably not the most "girl power" novel, but not every YA book needs to be. Can't wait to read the next book! Audio-Hoopla ( )

Could be spoilers.
I didn't realize this was book one. I didn't see that stated anywhere except for at the end of the book where it says "End of Book One." I don't know if I want to read the sequels. The book is OK. It seemed a little hunger-game-y. I wish we could imagine a world where feminine finery and make-up wasn't a given.
