Matched by Ally Condie

In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.

Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s barely any price to pay for a long life, the perfect job, the ideal mate. So when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the one . . . until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path no one else has ever dared follow—between perfection and passion.

My take: 3 looks
This was an entertaining read. I liked it more than some of the other Young Adult distopian books that I have read. I found it to be very subversive in its socialist ideals. The characters embraced the ideals and rules completely at the beginning, and the metamorphosis from "society" to "individual" was very well done. I may read the next in the series.
