All her life Cassia has been looking forward to this day, the day that she will finally learn who her match is. The person the Society has decided she is best suited to marry. She thought nothing could mar her happiness, but when the information she was given about her match contained the faces of two different boys, Cassia finds herself wondering if maybe the Society's mistake wasn't really a mistake. Was she matched to the wrong boy?

Matched is a slow paced Young Adult Read. Falling clearly into the Dystopian genre, this story in mainly focused on the life of one individual and her personal journey to enlightenment. It contains kissing and death, but no profanity, real violence, or sexuality. I recommend the audio book format of this book as it is an easy story to listen to.

Haters of love triangles beware, but lovers of slow paced dystopian fiction with triangles of affection may want to give it a spin.
