In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.
Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s hardly 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.
Thoughts: I really love this book I think as one reviewer said that this is very similar to the giver but more beautiful people. I would also compare it to The Selection series as well. The fans of both these books would love this trilogy. It is fast paced and I just whizzed through the books since there are so many twists. They are available as an eBook, audio book and book form. I started reading as paper copy then I finished listening to the eBook since I could not obtain a paper copy.
