Matched

Cassia is a normal 16 yr girl. She is excited to be going to her matching ceremony. She had never questioned her society, her parents, the government. Her world is structured, no surprises. She is about to find out who she will marry in the matching ceremony, were the government has matched her to the person who is suppose to be her perfect match. She knows that she will be married at 21, 2 kids, job, and will die on her 80th birthday. A normal long life that everyone has here in her society. When she is matched with her best friend (which is unheard of), she is thankful because she knows him and knows they will have a happy life together. As she looks at his profile at home, another face comes up. A face she also knows. A boy who she also has classes with. She is intrigued with the mistake. So which guy is the mistake? which boy is she suppose to be with? With the second boy, who came from outside the city, he is considered a anomaly, something different. Curiosity nags at her and she starts to talk to him. Who is the one she is truly meant for? As she talks and learns about life out side of her society, she starts to wonder, what else is the government doing to alter and control them? What is truly happening to the people outside the cit?  This book is a YA series. Book one Matched and book 2 Crossed, Book 3 is not out yet. The author makes you think, along with making a very interesting story! It is well worth the read for the YA or adult. Matched was better than Crossed but if you fall for the characters is Matched you must read Crossed. Looking forward to Ms Condie's next installment. I do not know if she has written any other works, but this is all I have read from her so far.
