Matched by Ally Condie

Matched was a very successful story with it's amazing futuristic setting and complicated plot.  This is the story of a girl who is matched with a soul mate by the government and is lucky to find her best friend, Xavier, her soul mate.  But when she is given a tablet of information on him, as everyone is, another face appears.  The face of Ky, a mysterious boy.  Cassia tries to understand the glitch and finds herself in a triangle between the boy she was luckily matched with or the impossible love with Ky.

With good character development and a good setting, the story held all important parts of a complete book.  The novel held my attention with its tiny detail and enchanting characters.  It introduced a new world into the readers mind, stretching my imagination in ways only Harry Potter had done before.  Matched would be good for any age group I would think, with no inappropriate parts and an interesting story.  After reading this book I found myself only asking, how had no one else thought of a story like this?
