Join Penguin Books USA’s chat with Ally Condie

Penguin Books USA is using social media to conduct a virtual book club! Every month Penguin Books USA will announce a staff-selected book for the club. Twitter followers are encouraged to ask questions about the book as they read, and to look out for announcements on “mini book club meetings” during the course of the month.

This month’s pick is Matched by Ally Condie. Here is a synopsis:

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.

‘Matched’ by Ally Condie

Fans of the book, take note! @penguinUSA will chat with @allycondie on Thursday 28th of August 2014 from 1 pm to 2 pm USA Eastern Time (1 am to 2 am Friday for those in Malaysia). To be part of the chat, be sure to include hashtag #ReadPenguin in your tweet(s).
