If you enjoyed the romantic triangle and dystopian future of The Hunger Games, you’ll love Matched by Ally Condie.  In the world of Matched, the Society has perfected humanity and Officials use personal statistics to choose what food you eat, your future profession and who you marry–or “match” with.   On her 17th birthday, Cassia is matched with her best friend: the handsome and perfect Xander.  She couldn’t be happier about her match until a “glitch” in the system shows that she is also matched with her childhood friend Ky.  As Cassia learns more about Ky and prepares to enter her profession, she begins to uncover more of the darker secrets of the Society.  Cassia no longer wants Society to make her life decisions for her; she wants to choose her own destiny but not following the Society’s chosen path proves to be dangerous to Cassia, her family, and her friends.
