By: Emily Hutchison, Joanna Wasvary, Mikaela Kosik, Leah Fershtman, and Allison Lammers

2 Setting… In the story Matched the setting takes place in a perfect town such as a utopia. This city is very under control by the government. We believe this story takes place in the far future because they have a lot of advanced technology we don’t have today. When we picture this city we picture a very drab city, where the government rules. When we see the city we picture a lot of houses that all look the exact same inside and out. Also we see large tall brick walls locking them inside the city so they cannot access the outside world that the are prohibited to access. We also see everyone wearing the exact same clothes. This city is so under control that they have compacts that tell give them there mood and they can save there life with what is in it. These compacts are filled with different colored liquids that control there body. The city does not allow anyone to die until they are eighty years old. They do not want to decrease the population at all. That is what we feel the main setting of they city is. S

But in seconds the screen becomes black and then another face shows up, and its not Xander’s face. Its Ky’s face a apperation from the outer world.

18 Conflicts… Man vs. Society: Cassia goes against the society to be with Ky. In the society she lives in you have to be matched with whoever you are going to marry and be with for the rest of her life. Cassia gets matched with Xander, but when she receives her micro card another face shows. It is Ky’s face. Her and Ky end up falling in love which is not allowed in the society they live in, especially because Ky is said to be and aberration. Man vs. Self: When Cassia sees her micro card and sees that not only Xander is on there, Ky’s face pops up also. Cassia is told it is a mistake, but something about Ky makes her love him. Cassia was so excited to be matched with Xander at first but when she saw Ky for the first time, she knew she loved him, even before she saw his face on her micro card. Cassia has to decide against what she tells herself she wants and what she really wants. Man vs. Fate: No matter what, you can’t choose who you want to be with. Cassia gets matched with Xander so it’s her fate to be with Xander. That’s how life works in her society and how it’s supposed to be. Cassia loves someone else though, she loves Ky. Cassia has to decide between her fate, which is to marry Xander like she is supposed to, or to be with Ky, and go against her fate. C

19 Theme... Theme is the idea of the story or the concept the author is trying to get to the reader. The theme is Lost Cities because the society is very over controlling. They decide who is born, who you love, how many kids you have, where you live, and when you die. After you get married they will give you a job, and you cant choose. In the book Cassia says “I believe people should be able to choose who they are matched with.” (pg 246). But the government is just wanting the city to be safe but its getting out of control. That was the theme of the story. T

20 Resolution… The resolution is when the problem in the story gets resolved. This story was resolved when Cassia makes a choice of which person she really loved, Ky, or Xander. She makes the choice to leave the society and to find Ky. She found out Ky was the one she loved all along, and that Xander was just a friend her whole life. She left the society so she could prove the government wrong that they didn’t ruled her all her life, and that she had some freedom of what her life was like. That’s what the resolution is in the story because she doesn’t want to be controlled her whole life, and wants a change. R
