When the Society has everything is planned out, even who you will marry and when you die, you should never have to worry about anything right? Cassia fully trusts the Society to make the right choices for her. That is, until the day she finds herself with two “ideal matches”—the day of her Matching Ceremony. I found myself wondering what would I do in a situation where suddenly I had to make a decision for the first time in my entire life. Who can you talk to when everything you do and say is monitored? And the bigger question: how could this happen when the Society never allows mistakes?— Brandi

“Yes, it's dystopian, but Matched is really about a young woman, Cassia, discovering the gift of thinking for herself after growing up under the rules of The Society. When she is matched to her 'perfect' mate but finds out that her true match might be a different boy with a mysterious past that The Society is trying to cover up, Cassia begins to question their real intention. I can't wait for the sequel, and I'm also hoping this will turn some teens on to Dylan Thomas' poetry.”
