What it says on Goodreads:

Cassia 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 it's 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 has dared to follow

What I have to say about it:

I liked this book. For some reason I'm totally into books with an alternate society at the moment so this book was right up that alley.
I like Cassie as a character, she's strong and knows that you don't need to blindly follow the rules. I think it's great she starts questioning what's happening in her world.
Her co-stars are amazing. Xander is a great guy and I think every girl would be lucky to have a guy like that around.
Ky is this dark, brooding guy. He's mysterious and has this kind of loner-vibe around him. He's like the perfect citizen of the Society. He's learned how to blend in and don't attract attention to himself.
The whole description of the society was amazing. I could imagine the different locations: the boroughs, the school, Cassie's house, the factory, ...
I can't wait to get my hands on Crossed and find out what will happen to Cassie and her friends next. I have a feeling the rest of the story is going to be amazing!
