Matched by Ally Condie

Matched by Ally Condie is the story of Cassia, a girl who lives in a world that is governed by the Society. The Society decides where you will live, what and when you will eat, where you will work, who you will marry, and when you will die. The Society's decisions are perceived as perfect, and are for the good of all the people. All teenage girls look forward to their Matching ceremony, where they discover the identity of their future mate. Cassia is elated when she is matched with her best friend, Xander. But she's shocked when a computer screen shows her the face of someone else as her match: the quiet and elusive Ky. She is told by the Officials that it was just a computer error, but Cassia is not so sure, and this event sets her off onto a journey of questions and discovery: are the Society's decisions really perfect? And should she continue to follow them blindly? If you enjoyed other dystopian books such as The Hunger Games or The Maze Runner, Matched might be perfect for your next read! Matched is the first book in a planned trilogy; be sure to look for the next book, Crossed, when it comes out late next year.
