Goodreads synopsis: Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander’s face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate . . . until she sees Ky Markham’s face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black.
The Society tells her it’s a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she’s destined to lead with Xander. But Cassia can’t stop thinking about Ky, and as they slowly fall in love, Cassia begins to doubt the Society’s infallibility and is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path that no one else has dared to follow.
My thoughts: This is another one of those books that received so much hype that I didn’t want to read it right away. It sat on my shelf forever. I can’t believe I waited so long. I really loved the main character, Cassia. Condie did a great job of creating her own world that really made me think. I haven’t always been a dystopian fan, but this is another one I’ll have to put under my belt. Great read!
By the way, Ally Condie is SO nice!
