The Favorite is another companion novella to the Selection series. In this installment we get a behind the scenes look at Marlee and Carter’s relationship told from Marlee’s point of view.
I really enjoy these extra looks into the story as I often feel like the main books left out a lot of background information. This one let’s us know how Marlee and Carter met and fell in love and what happens to them after the caning. There were peeks to the events in the main story but adding the extra details makes the story much more appealing to me.
Overall, an enjoyable addition to the Selection series, best to be read after finishing The One as it gives hints to the ending of that if you haven’t read it yet.
