Husband and wife superstars have teamed up again, this time to bring us a tale of adolescent bio-engineering. Hmmmm… what could go wrong?
Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate are husband and wife authors. You are most familiar with Applegate from her Newbery-winning The One and Only Ivan. I best know Michael Grant from his Gone series, but he has written tons of others, including the recent BZRK and Magnificent 12. Together they are responsible for the Animorphs series.

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.
YEP! This is a trilogy. Don’t forget the next two books:
