by Ally Condie
Cassia lives in the perfect world; everything from what you eat each day, how much leisure time you have, where you work, and who you will marry is decided for you. The Society has all kinds of computer programs and DNA tests to decide the optimal life for you. But what if you want pie for breakfast? Or you would like to jog on the sidewalk instead of a treadmill? Or choose your own profession and spouse? These are the dilemmas Cassia faces after being Matched with one boy and finding another boy’s face on the screen when looking at his data card. Should she accept the life the Society tells her to lead or fight for the life she wants? Fans of dystopian futures and science fiction will enjoy this first book in the “Matched” trilogy.
