Cassia and her family arrive at City Hall for a special celebration.
She is going to find out who she is supposed to spend the rest of her life with - her Match. Cassia's Match is in the room instead of in another City Hall, which is very unusual. It's her best friend, Xander. She knows nearly everything about Xander and is curious to see what Society wants her to know about him so she looks at his microcard.
She sees another face on the card and begins to wonder who her true Match is. Cassia finds out that the other male on the card, Ky, is an Aberration who shouldn't be Matched with anyone. She knows him because he is another friend of hers.
He has samples taken so he can be brought back when science advances. Grandfather gives Cassia a secret letter that he thinks she will appreciate someday, and he encourages her to really look into what's happening in her life and her world.

She does this to save his life. Ky is taken away from his home. He is sent to the Outer Provinces to fight. Cassia knows this is basically a death sentence. She is determined to find him. Society makes everyone take a tablet to forget the situation, but she refuses to take it.
She wants to remember him even if it is painful. Cassia's family is relocated due to her mother's work decisions. On the way out, Cassia's parents and Xander offer her support in finding Ky.
She is sent to a work area close to the Outer Provinces, and she is determined to find Ky someday. This section contains words approx.Matched Quote Post Hey book lovers! All things Matched are finally here!
