Post-Apocalyptic Books

Matched by Ally Condie

In Cassia's life the Society Officials decide everything. They decide what you eat, where you live, how you dress, who you marry, how many kids you have and when you die. She always believed that Society was perfect, until she gets her match. When she turns 17 she gets matched with her life long friend Xander, everything seems perfect until another face, Ky Markham's face, flashes up on screen. Officials assure her it was a unusual error. She tries to forget Ky's face gazing up at her but she can't, and she finds herself falling for him. She must choose between Xander and Ky, between society or rebellion. I loved this book and it reminded me of Uglies by Scott Westerfeld.

 The Adoration of Genna Fox by Mary Pearson

This book is unlike anything I've ever read. They tell her she is Jenna Fox, but she can't be sure.  After being in a comma she wakes up a year latter at age 17. Jenna Fox wants nothing more than to know what is going on. She knows she is not the same. When she realizes what has changed it is almost unbearable. They wanted to save her but what they have done be worse? Her own father did this to her. Would it have been better if they let her die?Now the question is not just who is she, it is what is she? Jenna is putting her life back together piece by piece, it is going to be hard because some of the pieces are gone for good.
