Matched by Ally Condie is a dystopian novel where the “Society” decides everything in their lives- whom to marry, where to work, where to live, where to play, when you die. Cassia, a 17 year-old girl, faces a big decision when choosing between her best friend and a boy with a special identity. This book illustrates the cautions Cassia takes when searching for her true love and the hate she has towards how the society functions. Cassia imagines everything is perfect in her life until a glitch appears after she has been paired with her best friend. Will she go beyond the society rules or will she remain safe? I like the setting of this book which shows the reader a different society. The characters are created with different personalities that go with the plot. However, I didn’t like how the plot moves so slow in the middle and doesn’t contain many turning points. Overall, I would recommend this book to people who enjoy dystopian and futuristic novels like Divergent.
