In Matched by Ally Condie my expectations were definitely met! A friend of mine had recommended this book to me because she thought it was my kind of book, and she was right. This book was about a society that thought it was a utopia but in reality it is a distopia. Also while the main character, Cassia, is figuring out all the bad things about her society, she starts to falls in love with someone who is forbidden. So basically this book is everything I look for in a book. So far it has adventure and romance!

During this book Cassia has to make a decision, whether to stay with her “match” Xander or be with the forbidden Ky. Ky is a aberration which means his father committed a crime, and that because of that he is not allowed to marry. Cassia ends up choosing ky over Xander which is a decision I agree with. I think even though Xander was sweet and perfect, Ky is still the best choice because he gives Cassia adventure and can relate better to her. He is definitely who I would choose! Also Cassia has to make a decision whether or not to defy the society. In the end she goes with her gut and defies society. Honestly I am not sure if I would have done the same. I am a rule follower, and it would take a lot for me to brak the biggest rules of all, and I definitely would not do it for a boy.
