Summary (from Goodreads)
In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.

Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s barely any price to pay for a long life, the perfect job, the ideal mate. So when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the one . . . until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path no one else has ever dared follow—between perfection and passion.

Matched is a story for right now and storytelling with the resonance of a classic.

Matched is easily one of this year's most anticipated YA novels (certainly one of mine!). Did you know that Condie received a seven-figure advance from Dutton for three novels? Don't quite believe it? Here's the article from Publishers Weekly
