APRIL Book Club: selection by Berit

Matched trilogy by Allyson Braithwaite Condie

Ally Condie received a degree from Brigham Young University and worked as a high school English teacher. She is currently a full-time author. Her books include Freshman for President, Being Sixteen, and the Matched Trilogy. (Bowker Author Biography)


Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate . . . until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. The Society tells her it's a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she's destined to lead with Xander. But Cassia can't stop thinking about Ky, and as they slowly fall in love, Cassia begins to doubt the Society's infallibility and is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she's known and a path that no one else has dared to follow.

This book, Matched, is the first in a trilogy. The books are:
1. Matched
2. Crossed
3. Reached

Mce has not read this yet. I am now 5th on the reserve list and there are 4 copies owned by the Mesa Library. I do have the second and third books being held, but am not going to read them until I have the first one read. Berit LOVES these books, hope you all enjoy them.
