Matched

Matched by Ally Condie
Cassia turns 17 and attends her matching ceremony where she will be introduced to her ideal mate. The setting is in the future in a utopian world where everything is planned so that life is long, healthy, and free from problems. The “Officials” give people few if any choices and that includes your future mate.  Cassia is matched with her best childhood friend and is pleased with her selection.  Another face appears on her selection screen for a moment and suddenly Ky begins to cross her path. She begins to fall in love with him and then begins to question the society she lives in where everything is determined for you.  This book is the first of a planned trilogy and you will find that the conclusion leaves you waiting to read book two. 
This book is written for  young adults and would be appropriate for middle school students as well.  Girls will be drawn to this book as the cover is very feminine and the main character is a girl who is thinking of her future marriage and mate.  The love interest is mild and a few kissing scenes are in the book. 
4 out of 4 stars
