Book Review: Matched by Ally Condie

Hello everyone! Today I finished Matched by Ally Condie. Here is my review and I hope you enjoy:

Plot: 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.

Review: This book was one of the best books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Cassia is one of the most interesting, amazing, strong characters in any book I have ever read and so is Ky. They both make the book really come alive not just the way that they long to be together, but also because of the way they express themselves through words and feelings. This story that you will never forget and it will also changing something about you. It made me great full for having the choices I have in my life that I can make and the freedom that I have. The writing style of this book is wonderful and really makes the book feel like much better to read. There are also other characters like Cassia's brother, Bram and also Xander who were so filled with life, but also filled with hope and safety. This book touched me in way that no other book has. I give this book a 5/5.
