March Read of the Month

The book of the month has been selected at Carlson High School, so I also made it my "Read of the Month" for March.  Matched by Ally Condy is a novel that follows the main character Cassia in a "perfect" society where everything is planned for all citizens.  All of Cassia's needs are met and she even knows when she will die.  Conflict appears during Cassia's match ceremony when two faces appear for her partner (a mistake in the usually mistake free world).  I am only providing a brief summary based upon the notes and information I found online.
March Read of the Month

The summary sounds a little like The Giver by Lois Lowry which I did enjoy.  I have already printed my 40% coupon and I am ready to head to Borders with some of my Christmas gift-cards (before they become worthless).  I will post a full review upon completing the book this month.  Staff and students will meet to discuss the book at Carlson High School on Wednesday, March 30th, 2011!
