In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.
Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s hardly any price to pay for a long life, the perfect 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.
This was a really interesting book. The whole time I was reading, I kept thinking of L'Engles world where IT rules, where everything is kept so rigid and organized. It was certainly interesting to read about :) It was also rather frustrating for me, mainly because I honestly don't think I'd do so well in such a regimented place. Not my style! But, still, a fun book. I wasn't quite so drawn in by Ally's relationship with Ky. I actually liked Xander better, and felt that he was a more developed character in some ways. I will certainly be checking out the next book in the series, CROSSED, when it comes out this fall!
