Matched by Ally Condie

In a Society where every detail of your life is planned out for you; from your meals to your job to who you will marry, one girl must chose to follow or to question everything she has ever known. Cassia follows the rules, she doesn't get infractions, she doesn't question the Society, she does what she is told. At her Match Banquet she sees the face of her match.... Her best friend Xander who is perfect. While looking at Xander's information, another face flashes before her.... Ky, a boy who (according to the Society) can never be matched. Now Cassia has to decide, does she continue to follow the rules and stay with Xander or does she risk it all to be with Ky.

As a person who loved The Giver by Lois Lowery, I really enjoyed this book. I found many similarities between the societies. Cassia, who has to question her entire world and everything she knew, was a wonderful character. The way the book ended has set itself up for a sequel and I am very much looking forward to reading it.
