** Interestingly, Queen Amberly was also known for favouring red dresses during her selection, although she goes for a darker, more wine-like shade.

* LoveAtFirstSight: ''The Prince'' heavily suggest this was the case for Maxon towards America.



* ShowDontTell: The books ''tell'' us that things can, and have gotten bad for the Singers due to money issues. But whenever we see them they're doing just fine, well enough to afford chicken with spices, tea and popcorn, and America to bing on sweets when she has her own paycheck... which comes from half the family's pay per job. And even before they were apparently well off enough that America can sneak her leftovers to Aspen. This is ''before'' America is chosen for the Selection and her family gets compensation.

* NotLikeOtherGirls: America is particularly bad about this in the early stages of the Selection, thinking she's the only girl who doesn't want to be there, she's not "over-the-top" like all the others -- even thinking she might be the only candidate who had to be warned not to turn the prince down, because all the others aren't just interested in dating him, but happy to make themselves sexually available any time he asks.

And apparently America is the only one out of thirty-four other girls who did not want her looks changed.

* FollowTheLeader: ''The Selection'' was one of the many books published following the massive sucess of Literature/TheHungerGames. Because of that, many people have taken to calling it a THG ripoff, although there aren't that many similarities (at least no more than any other recently published dystopian book).

*** In The Heir, Eadlyn's Selection really is an attempt to distract the citizens from uprising but it doesn't work very well because no one likes Eadlyn.
