I don’t know why we’ve never done this before on sophistimom—it seems so obvious. Of course we need a book club!!

Our first book for the club will be Matched by the lovely Ally Condie.

Here’s what it’s about:

Cassia lives in a world where nearly everything is decided for her: what she eats, how she sleeps, where she works. She is even told whom she is to marry.

At her matching banquet, she sees the face of her best friend, and everything seems perfect. A peaceful life stretches out before her.

But when a glitch in the system shows her for a fraction of a second she is matched to another boy she knows, she starts to imagine her life in a different way. And starts to question everything she has ever known.

For our book club, the comments section will not be spoiler free. Write what you think and feel about it. However, if you post a comment, please note at the top of your comment what chapter you will be discussing.

For example, if you have read the entire book (or not), but will only be commenting on material up to the fifth chapter, let’s say, then at the top of your comment, please write: SPOILER ALERT, CHAPTER 5. And then proceed.

Sound fun?? Okay, everybody. Can’t wait to see what everybody writes. If you need a copy of the book, you can purchase a copy from amazon by clicking here.
