Friday Reads: Matched
Genre: Young Adult Dystopian
By: Ally Condie
What's it about? Teenage girl discovers her society's perfection isn't all it's cracked up to be. And boys.
Why did I pick it? Another library pick--I'd heard a lot of chatter about it and it seemed quite popular.
Who will like it? If you like your dystopian with a heavy dose of romance and a light hand on the science, this one's for you. More about teenage coming of age and emotional growth than the more action-oriented dystopians.
Judging a book by its cover: Can you for this book? Great symbolism of feeling entrapped by society, with the green dress that figured prominently in the plotline.
