Reflection 1

I am reading the book Matched!!! It is amazing so far. Cassia’s town is run by the society. What they eat, what activities and work they do and who you love. It was about to be Cassia’s turn for the Match Banquet. Cassia was nervous but she was sort of excited. Then I was shocked!!!! Cassia got matched with Xander, her best friend. Xander and Cassia have known each other since pre-school and have always been close. Cassia’s friend Em, was matched with a boy from another province. It is extremely rare to be Matched with someone in your town. Cassia is a great character and she has so many emotions. I do like Xander too as he really likes Cassia. I can’t wait to read on because it is such a great set of chapters!!!!! An amazing week it has been xx Thanks to everyone in my group who has also made it so interesting!! We have had a lot to talk about!!!

IT IS OVER!!!! AHHHHHHHH. I can’t believe it. Matched was an amazing set of books and I loved it so much. My favourite character from the start is Cassia as she is such a loyal strong girl. She has been through so much and I can’t believe she chose KY. I was actually really happy because Ky is so loving and handsome. Xander is also really amazing but he just isn’t the one. As Ky was leaving, I screamed and I couldn’t believe he was going to war. I absolutely hate the official as she blamed Cassia for Ky going to fight. She is very rude and mean to Cassia when she has done nothing wrong. OMG I almost forgot, THE OFFICIALS DIDN’T PUT KY INTO THE MATCHING POOL. Who Did?? I have to read the second book now!!!!!! The book was amazing, a bit confusing at times but amazing. Ally Condie is a great Author and I think she did an amazing job writing the book. I enjoyed this book and I recommend it to others. What a wonderful story!!!!!

Dear Aggie

Dear Aggie,

I have had a terrible last few weeks!!! First of all, I fell off the tracker at home and made many cuts and bruises on my legs and arms. I was so embarrassed and I didn’t want to show anyone. Then I told Xander. I told him everything. The time Ky’s face popped up onto the port screen, how I was so worried and finally, that I love Ky. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done in my life, admitting I love someone else to my match, who is also my best friend. I still feel bad but I can’t help but love Ky. His glistening eyes in the sunlight, his amazing talents and how he loves me too. But then everything changed. I woke up one morning to the sound of screams. It was Ky’s Mother. Ky was being taken away by the officials. But why?? I ran towards him, worried and yelling his name. He was leaving, to go to his new job. I kept running, as fast as I could, I just needed to see his eyes again. I finally caught a glimpse of them. I started to cry a little and I was in shock. This was the maybe the last time I was going to see Ky Markham. Then I found out, he was going to war. After days of thinking about him, I needed to find him!! But I was leaving. I searched through the museums and came face to face with my official. I asked her about Ky and she blamed me for making him leave. I asked her if she really put Ky in the matching pool and she said yes. I could tell this wasn’t true. Then I moved to Sisyphus River and I continued to look for Ky while I worked there. Will I ever find him?? I need him. I love him.

Please help me,

Thanks, Cassia Reyes

 

 

 

Dear Cassia,

First of all, how are you holding up??

It sounds like you are having a rough time at the moment. I know that loosing someone you love is hard, but you still have Xander. Ky is going to fight for the country. And he is also fighting for you. You may think it your fault but it is not at all. Try and also be carm and collected when approaching your official. I know she isn’t nice and thoughtful, but if you are nice to her, at least you are making an effort. I cant believe she didn’t put Ky into the Matching Pool. I cant help you with that one sorry.

I have to go now as I also have to write back to another girl in your school, but best of luck.

I am here always and If you need me, I am the one to chat to. But don’t let those nasty officials see you writing.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Aggie

Reflection 3

What a wonderful set of chapters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This week has been so intense with a lot of new information and some sweet moments. My favourite character is still Cassia as she is strong, confident and loving. Cassia is starting to fade away from Xander, even though he is her match. Cassia now loves both Xander and Ky. I like Ky but I think he may be hiding something. He seems to love Cassia but I think he may be dangerous. The officials are watching Cassia and can see what she is dreaming. This is scary and I think people should choose who they love. The society is so strict and they are too controlling. I feel like Cassia is going to tell Xander about Ky and they are going to get in a big fight. Then I think that Ky will tell Cassia something that will make her hurt and she will be on her own. This is an amazing book and I can’t wait to read the final chapters!!!!

Do you think Cassia still has feelings for Xander???

Should Cassia and Ky be looking at the poems and writing in the dirt on the hill?? What happens if an official or another student come wondering??

Is it right that is Cassia got with Ky, she would be declared an aberration??

If Cassia was an Aberration, would that mean her family is too??

Should Cassia tell Xander about Ky??

 

Reflection 2

OMG, what a wonderful set of chapters. So much mystery, adventure and non-stop reading. My favourite part in these chapters was when Ky teaches Cassia how to write the first two letters of her name. Ky is the only person in the society that knows how to write and he goes ou of his way to teach Cassia. Even though Cassia was matched with Xander, I think she is starting to like Ky. She thinks about him a lot through the day and gets to see him in free rec hours for hiking. Xander deeply loves Cassia, his best friend and Cassia does love Xander back, but I don’t think it will last. I think that Ky may have a little crush on Cassia but not as much as she likes him. On the other hand, I think that Em has a little thing for Xander because she describes her match as handsome, and he looks like Xander. I absolutely love this book and I love Cassia. I can’t wait to see who end up with who?!

Coat of arms

IMG_4110

Green Silk Dress: The green dress is the dress that Cassia wore to the Matching Banquet and means a lot to her. When she went to chose a dress, she knew that nobody else would have it and that it was perfect for her.

Compact: The Compact was something that her grandfather gave her and she keeps it close to her. She hides and keeps valued treasures in there like the poem.

Xander: Cassia and Xander have been best friends since kinder and they know everything about each other. When they are matched, their relationship grows closer and they are the perfect couple.

The Tablets: I chose the tablets because I Cassia talks about them a lot and how she won’t take them because her grandfather said that he knows she doesn’t need them. Cassia feels very proud to be responsible for something and that her grandfather told her she is very strong.
