The Choosing by Rachelle Dekker A REVIEW

Like all citizens since the Ruining, Carrington Hale knows the importance of this day. But she never expected the moment she’d spent a lifetime preparing for—her Choosing ceremony—to end in disaster. Ripped from her family, she’ll spend her days serving as a Lint, the lowest level of society. She knows it’s her duty to follow the true way of the Authority.

But as Carrington begins this nightmare, rumors of rebellion rattle her beliefs. Though the whispers contradict everything she’s been told, they resonate deep within.

Then Carrington is offered an unprecedented chance at the life she’s always dreamed of, yet she can’t shake the feeling that it may be an illusion. With a killer targeting Lints and corruption threatening the highest levels of the Authority, Carrington must uncover the truth before it destroys her.

  The Choosing by Rachelle Dekker is an excellent novel. This is the first book she has written.  I really enjoyed it and can’t wait for book 2 in the Seer series. I want to see how this story continues.
  The story opens in the year of 2257. The world has changed greatly. Every girl just lives for the chance to be chosen when she reaches the age. If a man does not chose you to be his wife then society shuns you and you have to become a Lint and work as a slave and do the jobs no one wants. As a Lint you are considered a nobody and you are left to live on your own.
   Carrington doesn’t get chosen and begins the horrible life everyone avoids.
  Someone is killing Lints that disobey and it’s a horrible way to die. I must say even though I love this book I did figure out who the killer was early on in the book, but that didn’t ruin the story for me.
  Well Carrington meets and has a few friends and things just happen to bring her into a different kind of life.
 Many twists and turns in this story. Just when you think you have all things figured out something new happens.
  The theme of this book is that you are Chosen by God even if no one else chooses you. He loves you just the way you are and you are important to Him. No matter what anyone else says.
  Strange, but the sermon in church this past week was on the same theme. So this story has really stuck with me to let me know I’m loved and chosen by God.
  The Choosing is a very excellent book and I know Rachelle Dekker is going to go far in her writing career. Highly recommend The Choosing and so glad to have found a new favorite author.
