Mark | 2 comments I am posting this for a friend, she read it when she was 16, she got it from the library, so my guess would be YA fiction.

The book was published prior to 2000 I think. It is not Matched by Ally Condie.

The general plot is the society chooses who you marry but the main character, she cannot be matched with anyone. She ends up falling in love with someone outside the system.

She says her memory sucks but she has some vague notion of orchids or purple.

Orchid has paranormal talents involved. This may help rule it in or out.

Mark | 2 comments So I don't think Orchid is it but it had some promise for sure. I read the sample on Amazon of Amyrllis and relaying it to her (she is an audio book person), it doesn't ring a bell.

Handsmaids Tale is not it.

Thanks for the help so far.

Mark, are you still looking for this or did you find it?

Nathalie | 2 comments Perhaps it's not the book that I'm going to say but it reminds me of Delirium by Lauren Oliver so perhaps your friend can read this one while you try to find the book :)
