The Guardian has a small review of MATCHED, which  had great things to say about MATCHED!

 It taught me about love, family and how little things can mean a lot to you. I really enjoyed this book as I’d never read anything like it before.

It all started with the beautiful MATCHED cover!

I didn’t know anything about Ally Condie’s Matched. I had no idea what’s inside of the book. I’ve never actually read any reviews of it too. But one time when I was at the bookstore rummaging all the young adult books hoping to find something new to read, I saw Matched. They say not to judge a book by its cover but that’s a thing to not do when dealing with young adult novels. I thought the cover was beautiful. It actually glowed. And it made me want to read it at the instant. I didn’t even read any synopsis of it. Covers really do help in attracting readers.

Ally Condie’s Matched is set in a futuristic dystopian world where the Society dictates its citizens’ lives: where they work, whom they love, even when they die. There are some 
 upsides. Because the Society pairs up DNA-compatible mates, disease has been eradicated (and no one ever has to Internet-date). But there are downsides too. Our heroine, 17-year-old Cassia, is ”matched” with her best friend, Xander. Then a glitch in the Society’s usually seamless system convinces her that her true match is a quiet orphan with a mysterious past named Ky. Naturally she falls for the guy she can’t have, and begins to question everything about their way of life. By the time Cassia discovers why everyone must always carry a red, green, and blue pill — and just how the Society goes about making sure people die at the appropriate age — Matched has ventured into surprisingly grown-up sci-fi. Not quite Soylent Green territory, but still kinda grim.
