Last week I read Matched by Ally Condle for BlogHer Book Club.
I was really looking forward to reading this
because it's another young adult novel set in a dystopian world.
In this world, you future is controlled by The Society.
The Society decides where you can work,
who you can love
and when you can die.
It's horrifying ... and intriguing.
The main character, Cassia, suddenly finds herself questioning everything.
There's a love triangle.
There are mysterious actions.
And best yet, it's a series ... so there are two more books to read!
Here's a blurb from the back of the book:
Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows he is her ideal mate . . . until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. The Society tells her it's a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she's destined to lead with Xander. But Cassia can't stop thinking about Ky, and as they slowly fall in love, Cassia begins to doubt the Society's infallibility and is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she's known and a path that no one else has dared to follow.
