Seventeen-year-old Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her, but when there is a "glitch" at her Matching ceremony, she is torn between marrying her best friend and a new love, which could bring disaster.
In an antiseptic world where all decisions are predestined and organized by the Society, from meals to work to marriage, and even death, Cassia is happy. Excited to discover who her future husband will be at the Matching ceremony, Cassia is delighted by the choice of Xander, her best friend. But when an image of another boy named Ky briefly appears, she begins to wonder what it means. Digging deeper, Cassia soon discovers the truth about the Society, and the danger she's in. Fans of THE GIVER by Lois Lowry and the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins will enjoy this dystopian outing.
