Trailer Tuesday: Dystopia

I finished reading Matched by Allie Condie which really lingered in my mind.

Synopsis: From Amazon
On her seventeenth birthday, Cassia meets her Match. Society dictates he is her perfect partner for life. Except he’s not. In Cassia’s society, Officials decide who people love. How many children they have. Where they work. When they die. But, as Cassia finds herself falling in love with another boy, she is determined to make some choices of her own. And that’s when her whole world begins to unravel . . .

So I thought I would look at dystopian trailers this week. It was harder than anticipated.

Then I found this:

Doesn't that look fantastic - another for the wish-list I think.

Synopsis: From Amazon
An eighth grade girl was taken today . . . With this first sentence, readers are immediately thrust into a fast-paced thriller that doesn't let up for a moment. In a world not too far removed from our own, kids are being taken away to special workhouses if their families exceed the monthly debt limit imposed by the government. Thirteen-year-old Matt briefly wonders if he might be next, but quickly dismisses the thought. After all, his parents are financially responsible, unlike the parents of those other kids. As long as his parents remain within their limit, the government will be satisfied and leave them alone. But all it takes is one fatal visit to the store to push Matt’s family over their limit—and to change his reality forever.


  1. i just finished matched it was awesome! fab trailers

  2. The Limit looks interesting, and really topical in terms of where the UK is at right now. Do you know if it's by a British author?

  3. I love dystopias AND Matched. Does Delirium have a trailer? Or Grace by Elizabeth Scott?
