Review and Summary of the Dystopian Novel The Selection

***Warning Spoilers Below This Point***

America Singer, a red-haired and an outspoken young girl took part in The Selection after continuous jolting by her sisters and her boyfriend Aspen, who thought maybe this was a good chance for his love to have a better life. Aspen and America belonged to different castes. Society disapproved of marriages between different societal levels. America left for the palace and made good friends with other girls among which Marlee Tames became her best friend. All of them competed for the same throne with a wish to have the life which anyone would kill for.

Days passed, and the prince and Miss Singer unexpectedly grew closer and felt a very strong chemistry between them. Miss Singer fell for the prince, and Maxon had the same feelings too. America thought maybe if she will marry the prince, she will forget her past and life will move on.

They sent Aspen to the palace as a soldier. They sent him to the army, and he earned some great honours. Aspen and America saw each other in the palace, and immediately America felt the rage of love in her body for Aspen again. He looked stunning, and she asked herself about her love for Aspen. America felt confused and struggles to choose between the prince and her ex-boyfriend.

She told Aspen that things cannot be all romantic here in the palace, as they will consider it as a crime. Aspen became a member of The Elite selected by the prince himself. America realised that everything happens for a reason and she deserved to form part of the selected Elite.
