Waiting on Wednesday
I've just been reading about this title from Penguin Teens and so it was my obvious choice of books I simply can't wait to read
Matched by Alli Condie
Summary (from the back cover): Cassie 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 its 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 dared to follow.
Julie Strauss-Gabel, associate publisher of Dutton Children’s, is the editor and said in Publishers Weekly that it “will make readers crave the passion of uncertainty and cherish the power of the written word.”
This sounds SO very good and absolutely worth the wait. With thanks, as ever, to Jill over at Breaking the Spine who started this meme.
