So, since some of you have been asking, here are the official blurbs and summary, via my publisher. 🙂 Can I just say that Kami, Margaret, Melissa, and Carrie are so incredibly gracious, and generous to read and endorse this book. I am blown away, and deeply grateful.
Coming November 30.
Matched by Ally Condie.
“Matched is a page-turning, dystopian love story, written with the soul of a poet. Finally, a brave new world that readers from Twilight to The Hunger Games will claim as their own.”
—Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, authors of Beautiful Creatures
““Absolutely riveting! Matched is a must-read.”
–Melissa Marr, author of the Wicked Lovely series
“I can’t stop thinking about Matched. It’s impossible to put down this enthralling romance, set in a chilling world where every choice is predicted and even love is controlled. I need to know what happens next. More please!”
—Carrie Ryan, author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth and The Dead-Tossed Waves
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.
And. Guess what. I have my very own ARC and I am feeling like I want to give it away.
Do you want it?
If you do, please feel free to comment or become a follower. (If you’ve already become a follower, you’re automatically in.) I’ll use a random number generator to pick the winner. If you want an extra entry, please feel free to post/link to my site on your blog and then comment letting me know where that is. (That can also count as your comment. We’ll try to keep it simple.)
I’ll announce the winner on the first of June. I must have the entries by midnight May 31 my time (MST in the USA).
One caveat: if you already have an ARC, be it from BEA or somewhere else, will you please please let me know that if you win? I really want the book to go to someone who wouldn’t have access to it otherwise. 🙂
