really liked it

Fans of the Twilight and The Hunger Games series will have a new book series to love in Ally Condie’s ew new young adult dystopian novel, “Matched.” In Cassia’s world, nothing is ever left to chance. Everything from what she will eat to who she will marry is decided by the Society Officials. When Cassia attends the ceremony to find out who her match for marriage is, she is surprised to discover that it is her childhood best friend. It is almost impossibly rare that one would know who their match is so it is a happy surprise to realize it is someone she has known her life.

When Cassia arrives home to find out more information about her match on the microchip she is given, it is another boy’s face that she sees…another boy that she has also known. Cassia quickly spirals down the path of wondering if this really was who she was meant to be with as she discovers the power and consequence of free will.

Unlike, “The Hunger Games,” & “Twilight,” the one ingredient missing in this book is action. The element that brings the reader in is Cassia’s choice to love the person she has been chosen to be with, or to rebel against it all and going after the more dangerous choice. Unrequited love stories are always my favorite kind and the ending to this book left me anxious for the next book in the series from Ally Condie.
