Today I had the priviledge of attending the Launch Party for MATCHED by Ally Condie. It was released in stores on Tuesday and she is an absolute sweetheart that I am very glad I had the chance to meet. It was a wonderful event in which the introduced the book to us along with some interesting topics of how the characters were developed. Here is the writing from the dustjacket "In the Society Officials Decide Who you Love, Where you Work, When you Die. Cassia has always trusted their choices. It's hardley any price to pay for a long life, the prefect 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 sotry-telling with the resonance of a classic."
