By Ally Condie
Dutton, 2010. 384 pgs. Young Adult
Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her, so when Xander appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows he is her ideal mate--until Ky Markham's face appears for an instant before the screen fades to black.
I enjoyed the first book in this new dystopian series. The Society has made sure that everything is as perfect as possible. You are assigned a spouse, a job, and the ideal nutritional balance for your meals all based on your personal data. Cassia was fine living in this perfect bubble, until she began to see what the world could be like outside the Society.
I look forward to seeing Ally Condie on December 7th here at the Provo City Library. She will be speaking and signing at 7:00 pm in the Bullock Room, #309.
