(Age: 14+) Highly recommended. Cassia has just turned 17 and in her society that means she is now ready to be matched, on her birthday. The officials in her society decide everything that happens, who you love, when you will get married, how many children you have and when, where you will work for your whole life and when you die. When Cassia is matched she believes that he truly is her perfect match, but then she starts to fall in love with someone else.
I love this book! For anyone who loves a good romance novel this is a must read, it takes priority over Twilight for me, and I'm Twilight obsessed.
A beautiful love story that truly captivates you, I guarantee that you will get lost in this book. I was torn between the two male characters; I wanted both of them to live happily with Cassia. I was hanging on every word that Ally Condie wrote, mesmerized by the sentences that were formed.
I really truly hope that you will love this book as much as I have.
