I decided to read Matched by Ally Condie after a friend stumbled upon a copy and loved it.
Everything in Cassia's world is regulated - from the clothes she wears to the food portions blandly provided by The Society. Set in a dystopian future, Matched is the first installment in a trilogy sure to appeal to fans of The Hunger Games, The Giver, or George Orwell's 1984.
In a world where even your best match is selected for you, Cassia struggles to deal with the burden of 'choice'. Will she stay with the best friend who is right for her on paper, or follow her heart towards the boy who makes her question everything?
