10th Anniversary Of Ally Condie's "Matched"

Nov 20, 2020

Ten years ago this month, Ally Condie’s "Matched" was published, launching the dystopian YA trilogy that includes "Crossed" and "Reached."

Matched quickly garnered myriad fans among booksellers and YA readers: in its first week on sale, the novel debuted in the #2 children’s slot on the ABA’s indie bestseller list and subsequently was published in 34 countries, appeared on more than 20 state award lists, and reached a worldwide in-print tally of more than five million copies.

And that was just the beginning. "Matched" has just been released in a Deluxe Anniversary edition.
