Book Review: Matched by Ally Condie

Yesterday, I got a lot done in the morning and then I read. An entire book. almost 400 pages. In one day. It was GOOD!

The book is a young adult book very similar to The Hunger Game triology (and, yes, it is the first of a trilogy, too!). The story is about a 17 year old girl, Cassia, who lives in a "Utopian" (or dystopian) society. The Society has everything figured out - the decide who you marry, how many kids you have, how much food you need to eat, and even when you die - at the perfect age of 80 (when you have lived a good, long life but before you start feeling 'useless').

When Cassia turns 17, she finds out who her "Match" is: the boy she will marry. And, she is shocked to find out it is her best childhood friend! But, later, when she sits alone to review his file (on a type of computer), she is shocked to see an image of a different boy... another boy she knows. Now, her heart starts to tear apart as she is torn between the two boys.

Today, I went to the library and got the second book in the trilogy, Crossed. I'm getting off the computer to start reading it!
