Casey, with a book

Goodreads says this is #0.5 ... Does that mean I can read it before The Selection? I thought it might be a good way to decide whether I want to read the series.

Hannah This does take place before The Selection, but I think you're supposed to read it after you read the first book otherwise I don't think it'd really make much sense because you wouldn't know Maxon as a character already. And it's not really written like it's introducing you to him you know? Kinda just giving some backstory to what you learn in The Selection, which is such a quick read you could probably speed right through it.
hayden I'm pretty sure that just means it occurs chronologically before The Selection, in the grand scheme of things. If I were you, I would still start off with The Selection to give this context, although, yes, you could start wth this if you wanted to.
Alexandra Justine because it's just a 64 paged book
