Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate . . . until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black.

The Society tells her it's a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she's destined to lead with Xander. But Cassia can't stop thinking about Ky, and as they slowly fall in love, Cassia begins to doubt the Society's infallibility and is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she's known and a path that no one else has dared to follow.

My thoughts; I read this book because I heard several people compare it to The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Well I am going to have to disagree. The only thing I found similar was the "society rule" setting in which the book takes place. If you are looking for the action packed read of The Hunger Games, you will be disappointed with this book. However, if you are looking for a good read to get you through the next day or so, it is great. I will look forward to the rest of this trilogy, although, I am not going to be rushing to the stores on release day. Happy Reading!! :-)
