Just got the news that MATCHED will debut at #5 on the Dec. 19th NYT Bestsellers List (Children’s Chapter Books).

Unbelievable!! Huge thanks to everyone at Penguin, and to you, the readers for making this happen!

I am over the moon. I can’t stop smiling. And I wish I could think of something wonderful to say to all of you who made this happen, but all I have is:

Thank you again, and again, and again.

    Pshaw. That can’t be right. Only #5? I bought THREE copies just myself. It should have AT LEAST made it to #2, if not #1.


    Not surprised at all. It’s SO good, and TOTALLY deserves every single ounce of positive hype it’s been getting.

    Congrats, Ally!
