I enjoyed this book, it won't be making it's way into my favourites collection, but it will be staying on my shelf. Matched is almost dangerously good, you fall in love with the protagonist Cassia almost instantly: she's just so naïve and clueless. Cassia believes that anything that the Officials do is right. The Officials know best. Being a teenage reader I was immediately scornful of those officials. How could they possibly be that perfect? And the answer is they aren't. As the reader digs deeper into the novel, and as Cassia digs deeper into her life, Cassia's whole perspective on the society changes, and she ends up putting her familys life in danger. This is a really good teenage girls read, and if you've read Finding Sky by Joss Stirling, Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver then you'll love this.
