Cover Talk: Matched by Allyson Condie

I just found the cover for one of the books I am most excited about this fall! Matched, written by Allyson Condie, is set in a world where teens are matched for life by a higher power. Here's the summary:

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.

And now, the cover:


Pretty cool, right? I like the colors used, and without reading the book, the girl stuck in the bubble seems pretty symbolic. I am really looking froward to this one...I might have to be bad and move it to the top of my TBR list! 

What do you think?
