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 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. Look for the sequel, CROSSED, and the epic series finale, REACHED!

Those who liked Divergent will like Matched. In this dystopian society story, Cassia is matched with her best friend as future husband and life partner. He fits with the job she plans to have and the life she plans to lead, but for a moment, Ky flashes on the screen as her match. Was it a computer glitch or is he her perfect match? These questions lead Cassia to question everything she has known her whole life including the values and structure of her society.
I loved this book. It is one of my favorites. Personally I liked it better than Divergent.
