Matched by Ally Condie

24 Mar

This week, I decided to start Matched by Ally Condie.  A bunch of other girls in my grade are reading it, and I needed a new book to read.  Matched is about a seventeen year old girl named Cassia.  Cassia lives in a futuristic world, where everything is planned for you.  She gets Matched with her best friend, Xander Carrow.  When she slides the card with information about him into the port, a different face comes up.  Ky Markham.

Cassia’s feelings change rapidly in the beginning.  First she is confused about seeing Ky’s face.  Then, once an Official explains, she begins to wonder.  What if she and Ky really were meant to be Matched?  What if it wasn’t a mistake?  Ky is not allowed to be Matched at all, but Cassia hangs out with him even more after she had been Matched.  She starts to believe that the whole government system is flawed.  Not just the Matching system, but everything else, too.

For this book, I’d say it was a plain check.  It was pretty good, but I’ve read much better and much worse books.  Next week, I’ll either blog about The Hunger Games or (if I can get it from the library), Amelia Lost.
