TIL ~ By TheImperfectLife Updated Jan 03

Population levels have reached critical, forcing the government to step in. A new system is built - an assigned mate for 16-year-olds, one child per family, all done with computer algorithm. Careers are determined for what job is needed and best suited for. Any deviation and they face the risk of becoming a Lower--the unwanted dregs of society. Or sometimes something far worse.
    
    Rebecca hates the system. She's paired with a cookie cutter human called Jake, sees her dream job given away to a liar, and is forced to work in endless code as a programmer. Nothing is what she would choose for herself.
    
    When she and a boy with many secrets, Scott, discover a flaw in the system, they realize they can change everything. Jake can be with his real love. Rebecca can be a librarian. Society can be turned on it's head with the sweep of a key stroke. If they're caught, they face a fate far worse than becoming a Lower.

OVERWRITTEN IS AMAZING. This reminds me almost like the Divergent series or Matched. It's really well written and I'm enjoying it so far. I'm definitely into books that follow the Dystopian theme. Def going to keep reading :')

Intoxicate means something different from what I think you are trying to describe.

Wow. This is good. Very descriptive. A little too much, but still done really well.
