MATCHED=L.O.V.E.

i positively adored Matched! go read it...NOW! a lovely dystopian romance novel that asks the question; would life be perfect if we were given  jobs that we were perfectly fitted for, matched with our ideal spouse, given the perfect life without sickness, a life without choices? Throughout the novel Cassia ( the main character) realizes that her life is not as perfect as it seems and answers these questions with a  firm and resounding NO. although matched perfectly with her best friend since childhood, Cassia falls madly in love with another young man who she has also known a long time that has a secret past that he slowly reveals to her. their love is forbidden of course, so they must choose to revolt against the Society or keep their ever growing love in the dark and be content with the choices that they are given. 
your succor for dystopian love stories,

i love this poem now (sigh)! it's Cassia and Ky's poem ( and their basis for REVOLT against society!):

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on that sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
