Matched by Allie Condie


Cassia Reyes lives in a perfect world controlled by the Society. They control meals and portion sizes, what job you have, and even who you marry. The control creates what the Society defines as the optimum life, but as Cassia learns more, she questions the value of life where you are given no choice.

This is a good book for lovers of dystopian novels (The Giver, The Hunger Games, Uglies, The Maze Runner). Dystopia isn't my favorite type of book, but this one is clean and non-violent with an engaging story and the typical lessons about choice and freedom. There is also the typical love triangle that seems a necessity for this type of book. The sequel, Crossed, is also currently out, with a third book on the way.
