Matched by Ally Condie

Who says books are dying? For the millions of fans of Twilight and The Hunger Games, get ready. We've got the scoop on your next trilogy to devour.

Matched by Ally Condie

If you're a bit lost after finishing Mockingjay -- the thrilling conclusion to The Hunger Games trilogy -- and missing the love triangle between Edward, Bella and Jacob in the Twilight books, look no further for your next lit fix. Our SheKnows December Book of the Month is sure to get you fixated on another trilogy: Matched by Ally Condie is the first installment and we can't wait for more.

Matched: December book pick!

In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.

Cassia has always trusted their choices. It's hardly 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.

Raved about in Entertainment Weekly and the LA Times and fought over by publishers at an auction, Matched by Ally Condie is sure to keep you turning the page in December and eagerly awaiting what's next from this talented author.

Read an excerpt, view the book trailer and learn more about the author and book on the Matched website.
