Matched seems to be what would happen if you swirled together the Hunger Games and Divergent. Cassia is a normal teen living in an option less world, until she is matched incorrectly. Now instead of knowing the one person she will spend the rest of her life with, she is divided between an unapproved choice & Xander her lifelong friend. Cassia spends her time trying to work in the system to get what she thinks her heart desires. Until the Society catches on and now she has to figure out how to keep everyone safe or risk it all to make her own choices.
I gave 4 stars for lack of diversity in characters and back story. They all seemed to be very basic in nature and in a society where they are bred for optimum efficiency human, you would think they would be a little more diverse. I also wanted some back story on how they ended up in this dystopian era.
