chance not what she will eat, the job she will have, or the man she will marry In Matched, the Society Officials have determined optimal outcomes for all aspects of daily life, thereby removing the burden of choice When Cassia s best friend is identified as her ideal marriage Match it confirms her belief that Society knows best, until she plugs in her Match microchip and a different boys face flashes on the screen This improbable mistake sets Cassia on a dangerous path to the unthinkable rebelling against the predetermined life Society has in store for her As author Ally Condies unique dystopian Society takes chilling measures to maintain the status quo, Matched reminds readers that freedom of choice is precious, and not without sacrifice Seira Wilson Exclusive Author QA with Ally Condie Q What inspired you to write Matched A Matched was inspired by several experiencesspecific ones, like a conversation with my husband and chaperoning a high school promand general ones, like falling in love and becoming a parent Q How do you think Matched differs from other dystopian novels A I think its different in that its perhaps less action oriented and introspective This is really the story of one girl, Cassia, learning to choose Q The cover for Matched is so eye catching and mysterious What does the image represent to you A I cannot imagine a perfect cover for this book To me, the image is a clear representation of Cassia, the main character, and the way she is trapped in her world Its kind of a lovely worldthe bubble is beautifulbut its confining nonetheless And, of course, the color green is very important to the book Im just so thrilled about this cover Theresa Evangelista, the designer, and Samantha Aide, the photographer and model, are incredibly talented Q In Matched, each member of the Society is not only assigned a spouse, theyre also assigned a job, and Cassia, your main character, is a data sorter If you lived in the Society, what job do you think youd have A I would definitely not be a data sorter I am terrible with numbers and patterns I think I would probably be a teacher or instructor Or maybe one of the people did a mundane task, like dishwashing I have a feeling that I wouldnt fare very well in the Society Q Dylan Thomas classic poem, Do Not Go Gentle, is part of a theme that youve woven throughout Matched Do you remember when you first came across this poem What made you decide to use it in your novel A I dont remember when I first read this poem, which is pretty embarrassing But I do remember the first time I heard a recording of the author reading it I remember feeling almost reverent, and paying close attention to how he said the words and went through the lines This poem came to mind almost immediately when I started writing the book Its probably the most universal poem Ive ever encountered The first line alone resonates immediately with almost everyone Q What do you like about writing for teenagers A Everything I like talking with teenagers themselves about books I like trying to capture the teenage voice And I like writing about teenagers because they have SO MUCH happening in their lives, and they are passionate about those things Q What were some of the books you loved as a teen Did any of these books influence Matched at all A I loved and still do Anne Tyler and Wallace Stegner I remember being introduced to those authors in ninth grade and being floored by the beauty of their writing I also loved anything by Agatha Christie I think these books did influence menot in any concrete, specific way, but in that I wanted to write a story about a character worth caring about even though because of the fact that she is flawed and human Q What would you like your readers to take away from the experience of reading Matched A I hope they can take away whatever they need from the story I hope there is something there for a reader whether its relating to a character or reading a scene that feels true or anything else Q Will there be books featuring Cassia, or set in the world of Matched A Yes There will be two books in the Matched trilogy Gr 7 UpIn a story that is at once evocative of Lois Lowry s The Giver Houghton, 1993 , George Orwell s 1984, and Aldous Huxley s Brave New World, Condie introduces readers to the perfect Society Cassia Reyes is a model student, daughter, and citizen How could she not be when the Society has everything planned and functioning perfectly All of her needs are met food, shelter, education, career training, and even her future husband are selected by officials who know what is best for each individual by studying statistical data and probable odds She even knows when she will die, on her 80th birthday, just as the Society dictates At her Match Banquet she is paired with Xander, her best friend and certainly her soul mate But when a computer error shows her the face of Ky, an Aberration, instead of Xander, cracks begin to appear in the Society s facade of perfection A series of events also shakes her dedication to Xander and puts her future in jeopardy Cassia exhibits some characteristics of Winston Smith and Lenina Crowne in her silent rebellion against societal control and in her illicit friendship with Ky but ultimately, and satisfyingly, she is like Lowry s Jonas Her awakening and development are realistically portrayed, and supporting characters like Cassia s parents and her grandfather add depth to the story The biggest flaw is that the story is not finished Fans of the Giver will devour this book and impatiently demand the next installment.Anthony C Doyle, Livingston High School, CA c Copyright 2010 Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc No
