Reached by Ally Condie

Reached (Matched, #3)Reached by Ally Condie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love a good series and the Matched trilogy did not disappoint. I kept wanting to manipulate the characters to a different path in their lives but that is not my prerogative. The message I liked best about this series is that creativity is important and that hand writing is a simple art form. Yes, yes all that stuff about the Society repressing and lying to its citizens is a bad thing to do but really, don't we see that in our own lives already? Books like this are wonderful because it sends a message to young people that they have value to a community and they can make a difference for the good of all.

Now if you are like me, you aren't just satisfied with a great read, you need to know more about the author, illustrator, and those delicious back stories that inspire the tale.
Here are a couple of links to set you on your path:
The Matched Department/Quotes
The Matched Wiki   LOVE it! All the info you need.

I encourage all readers interested in YA Fiction to read the entire Matched Series. It will be such a treat now that the series is complete and you won't have to wait in agony for the next release date. What are you waiting for? Reserve it now from your local library or run to your nearest bookseller.
