Review
Recently there are a lot of books about futuristic societies like The Hunger Games, Divergent,... and Matched . I liked THG and Divergent, so obviously I liked Matched.

This society controls EVERYTHING. The citizens their food, work, ideal mate, how many children they may have and when they die.
Matched is about Cassia Maria Reyes. She has her first Matching ceremony and her ideal mate is her best friend, Xander Thomas Carrow. It's a relief for her that she already knows him and likes him.
They get cards with all the information about their ideal mate, but when she uses her card, not Xander's face appears but Ky's face. Ky Markham is a friend of Cassia and Xander, he's adopted and he doesn't come from the place he currently lives in.
Cassia freaks out but one of the persons of her society reassures her that it's just a fault they've made. But she can't get Ky out of her head.
Meanwhile her grandfather turns 80, so he has to die, she needs to make a test to see which job she'll get and as summer activity she chooses hiking, which is a sport Ky also picks. They are a team and they fall for each other, more and more. He learns her how to write and I just love Ky. Sigh, when Ky appeared on the screen I was thinking like he's way better than Xander. And he's been trough a lot and he just tells everything about his past, even though it's hard... It's just so beautiful and sad! A lot of things happen in this book and you just have to read it.

So when I was reading I wanted that Cassia would choose Ky instead of Xander and my wish came true!! The ending was stupid, not in a bad way, but in a way like I have to read the sequel!! So I can't wait to read the sequel!
