In the book Matched by Allie Condie, there is a main character named Cassia. She's 17 years old and is attending a matching banquet; something that happens annually after people turn 17. She's with her family and her best friend Xander who is also getting matched.
After everyone got matched except for Xander and Cassia, it was her turn to find out who she got matched with. When she walked up to the big screen that reveals the match, the screen never turned on and remained dark.
After reading this, I predict that there was a corruption with the system and she might have to wait another year to Match, since the event is so important and only occurs once a year.
I will comment on Kaycee's blog.
The relationship between Cassia and Xander is they were best friends since they were really young, but now they are matched. Cassia knew a lot about Xander but right after they got matched she automatically wanted to read the profile for him that the society created, and get to know him even more. Cassia's a little worried for their friendship, but she's really happy and likes Xander. The relationship between Cassia and Xander is good and they are supposedly lucky to be matched in the same area and to already know and be near each other.
Cassia decided to look at the micro card that was given to her, but when the picture came up, it wasn't Xander's picture; it was someone else and the screen shut down. Cassia knew the person that appeared on the screen, but she wishes to forget about him. After hearing that Ky, the second match, was an aberration and wasn't supposed to be in the "Matching pool" she started to feel bad for him because he wasn't allowed to match.
The official of the matching department talked sweetly with Cassia, but she was still stern and very nosy with her. She seemed to understand Cassia's situation pretty well though and made sure she was okay and not offended by the mistake.
Ky Markham and Cassia's relationship is they're friendly, but not close. Cassia saw Ky appear and try to help save Xander while he was retrieving his lost container, which surprised her and was a little awkward. When Cassia was reading a poem on the hiking hill that her grandfather gave to her to read, Ky saw her and they started talking about their losses. Cassia asked about his real mom who passed away but he refused to answer about it and said she shouldn't have asked. When Ky asked who he lost she wanted to say he shouldn't have asked but she started talking about her grandfather anyways. Their relationship is good friends, but she feels strange and keeps thinking about him because he showed up as her second match. She's starting to believe that he might have been her original match.
Put yourself in the book
While Cassia was in her Language and Literacy class, there was a message that came up on the main port of the classroom, saying that she committed an infraction and that there'll be an official talking with her. Her whole class was surprised and the mood was getting awkward, but Cassia felt ready to talk to the official and she stood up proudly, bringing her things with her. Cassia was a little nervous when she was talking to the official because she assumed it would be about Ky, the artifact she's hidden, or possibly the poem her grandfather gave her. The official was praising Cassia for doing excellent in a sorting test, but then she brought up Ky.
If I was in Cassia's place in this book, I wouldn't want to risk getting Ky into trouble. It would be sad to just leave it at that and be friends, but the society is strict, along with the officials. If I was her I'd feel a bit bad for Xander because she only loves Ky and she doesn't see Xander in her heart anymore.
Write a mini sequel (or prequel, spin-off)
Cassia found out from the one official she dislikes that Ky showing up was all part of an experiment that they were working on. She said that they wanted to see how the two would react and respond, saying that Cassia was interesting to watch. Cassia got furious and asked which parts were the experiment. The official didn't know about the artifact and poem still, so she was grateful for that. She risked herself and family for Ky when the official asked her what Kyhas shared with her and she responded with a simple "No." She had to go to the Outer Provinces and work an awful job, but she is still on the search for Ky.
Ky Markham's story: The tragedy of Ky and his parents.(Prequel)
Ky's parents have been killed in the Outer Provinces by the officers or officials for not agreeing to abide by the rules and work under the Society. Ky, their son, didn't rebel but chose to live with the Markhams and act "average" since the inner area was strict and didn't want him sharing anything he learned from the Outer Province. He decided to share his writing skills with a friend, and got sent away for his job.
