Waiting on Wednesday: Matched by Ally Condie

Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s barely 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.

Matched is a story for right now and storytelling with the resonance of a classic.

My pick for this week was chosen for a silly reason. My maiden name is Condie so it’s fun to a book by an author with the same last name. Plus I’ve seen this book on so many blogs and read a lot of good reviews. Now to get my hands on a copy!

Matched by Ally Condie is scheduled to be released on November 30th.

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted on Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
