Prequel Time!

I get questions about a lot of the other women in America Singer's life. The maids (of course), Marlee, and (one my personal faves) Queen Amberly. It seems to be quite a mystery to most of us how such a wonderful woman could have ended up with Clarkson. But soon, you'll all know the answer! We're taking you back to the last Selection to see Amberly's story unfold in a new novella!

 

Descrption for The Queen:

Before America Singer’s story began, another girl came to the palace to compete for the hand of a different prince….

Don’t miss this digital original novella set in the captivating world of Kiera Cass’s #1 New York Times bestselling Selection series. This prequel story takes place before the events of The Selection and is told from the point of view of Prince Maxon’s mother, Amberly. Discover a whole new Selection with this inside look at how Maxon’s parents met—and how an ordinary girl named Amberly became a beloved queen.

HarperTeen Impulse is a digital imprint focused on young adult short stories and novellas, with new releases the first Tuesday of each month.

The ending of the one was soooooo horrible! But it was also good. Just WHY WHY WHY! it kinda ruined the book in the almost ending part (trying not to spoil the book- if you read it you know the scene with the red bandanas)

I was just wondering how many books will be in this series. Not to seem mad or anything...but.... YOU LEFT ME HANGIG! HOW COULD YOU! I THOUGHT I COULD TRUST YOU TO RIGHT ME A BOOK WHERE I WOULD NOT HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AT THE END BUUUUUUTTT NOOOOOOOOO YOU JUST HAD TO BE LIKE THIS HAPPENED, KING CLARKSON DIED, AND MAXON AND AMERICA GOT MARRIED. THE END. WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU!! I DEMAND YOU WRITE ME ANOTHER BOOK! ASAP! Now that that is out of the way, I LOVED The One. I honestly could not put it down. I had to go to my brother's graduation the day it came out, so I took it to the graduation, and readt through his name. haha! Anyway, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE WRITE ANOTHER BOOK! I loved this series so much I seriesly can't get enough of Maxon and America. Plus, you didn't write on The One that it was the final book in The Selection series, you said it was the third book, so you could write another book in the series. Sorry this message is getting really long... so in case you forgot what I said, here is a watered down version: I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOUR BOOKS, AND I ORDER YOU TO WRITE ANOTHER BOOK! kk bye! ily 2 da moon and back <3

Oh, God! Oh, God! I cant breathe...it's like...are we gonna see the cute part of king Clarkson? 'Cause I didn't know he had a good part in him after The One...but, I'm just like..."Oh, God, oh, God!...Godness! I need help! I can't breathe!" But yeah, after all that episode in my life...I'm breathing normal enough to write this. Is he good enough? I mean, to write a cute part in him? But I don't care, I will read the book. This is too amazing for me.
