Matched is by Ally Condie. The first book in a great new series. This series rivals Hunger Games in the "fantastic dystopian fiction" category. All of her life Cassia has obeyed the rules of the Society without question. On the night of her Match Banquet, she is Matched with Xander the boy of her dreams. But when she gets home and looks at his Match Card it's another boy's picture she sees. An Official from the Society tells her the next day it was all mistake, but was it? Who is her true Match, Xander or Ky? As Cassia begins to seek the answer she finds everything she has always been told about the Society is a lie. A Reader's Corner Highly Recommended read for girls and boys alike.
