In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.
Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s barely any price to pay for a long life, the perfect job, the ideal mate. So when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the one . . . until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path no one else has ever dared follow—between perfection and passion.
Matched is a story for right now and storytelling with the resonance of a classic.
"Why did you let me hold on to it anyway?" I ask him. "The Case with the arrow. It's beautiful. But I wasn't sure-"
"No one but my parents know that I have it." he says. "When Em gave me the compact to give back to you, I noticed how much alike they were. I wanted you to see it."
His voice sounds lonely all of a sudden, and I can almost hear another sentence, the one that instinct still keeps him from saying: I wanted you to see me. Because isn't this what it's all about, the golden case with the arrow, the bits of story offered here and there? Ky wants someone to see him.
He wants me to see him.
I am only up to Chapter three and so far so good. Has my attention :-)
To do this Teaser I just jumped a couple of pages and read bits and parts that I could put up without any spoilers. :0)
