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 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.
From the Publisher:
Seventeen-year-old Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her, but when there is a "glitch" at her Matching ceremony, she is torn between marrying her best friend and a new love, which could bring disaster.

But when an image of another boy named Ky briefly appears, she begins to wonder what it means. Digging deeper, Cassia soon discovers the truth about the Society, and the danger she's in.
