The three main characters in this story are meant to be "unwinded," but they run away before anyone can touch them.
2. Inside by Maria V. Snyder

3. The Selection Trilogy by Kiera Cass
In this novel, thirty-five girls get selected to compete for the love of a prince. However, the main character isn't happy about the opportunity, because she's already in love with someone else.
