Matched by Ally Condie

Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate . . . until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black.
The Society tells her it's a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she's destined to lead with Xander. But Cassia can't stop thinking about Ky, and as they slowly fall in love, Cassia begins to doubt the Society's infallibility and is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she's known and a path that no one else has dared to follow.

This book wasn't what I expected. I haven't read that many dystopia books, and I didn't think I would like this book. I just thought I'd give it a try, that it would be nothing special. Boy, was I wrong. What a good book. I loved how different from everything else I've read it was. It was really unique. Cassia's a deep character. I love the way she talks about poetry and the society she lives in. This book really makes you think. It makes you think and appreciate the choices you have today. I think the books started off a little slow, but ti picked up the pace pretty fast, and when it did, I didn't want to put it down. This book was a real surprise for me and i'm glad I read it. I recommend this book for everyone who is looking for something new and unique to read.
