Matched by Allie Condie

Matched by Allie CondieCassia lives in a world where The Society decides everything for you, including who you marry.

I have to admit that this book took me a while to read, mainly because I thought the pace was slow. As I kept reading I wanted to know if Cassia would choose Xander or Ky! I enjoyed the way the government was portrayed, and it really shook me up. This book made some really interesting points such as the way people were not able to write in cursive because they were only taught to type. It makes me wonder what life will be like in 10, 20, or 50 years. Overall I loved this book and I cannot wait to read Crossed!
