As she prepared for her own wedding, former Bookish YA editor Margaret Bristol shared matrimonial wisdom that she picked up from young adult novels.
Here’s what she learned from The Selection by Kiera Cass:
When you open yourself to new experiences, you never know what you might find. America would have never have met handsome prince Maxon if she hadn’t signed up for a “Bachelor”-style competition for his hand in marriage. While Mer is totally resistant at first, the warmest parts of this novel are when Maxon starts winning her over.
Bristol also consulted these famous young adult books: The Registry by Shannon Stoker, Requiem by Lauren Oliver, The Giver by Lois Lowry, Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, and Uglies by Scott Westerfeld.
