Title: Matched
Author: Ally Condie
Series: Matched Series, book 1/3
Genre: Dystopian, Romance, Sci-Fi, YA
Publisher: the Penguin Group

Release Date: November 30th, 2010

The Society in Matched is a highly controlled, analyzed civilization. Part of this analysis is the Matching system, where the Society chooses your spouse. When Cassia’s Match is revealed to be Xander, her best friend, she couldn’t be more pleased. But another match is revealed – Ky, someone she knows little about. This glitch is unheard of in Society. Is her Match Xander, or Ky?

Cassia unintentionally interacts more regularly with Ky. As they spend time together, trust develops and they share parts of themselves that no one else knows. They step into dangerous territory, not just in the all-controlling Society, but in their own hearts.

I enjoyed this book, though it was slow at times, and I’m excited to see where Cassia’s decisions take her in the next book in the series, Crossed.
