Matched Chapter 6

By Ally Condie

Chapter 6

  • Flashback time again: It's that day at the pool. At home, Cassia's parents learn from Xander's dad that Ky is an orphan who has been adopted by his aunt and uncle, Aida and Patrick.
  • In a rare case of government failure, Aida and Patrick's son was murdered by an Anomaly; the parents speculate this adoption is to compensate.
  • Back to the present day. Cassia visits her grandfather and tells him about the microchip issue.
  • We learn that Ky isn't in school anymore because he's been given a permanent work assignment in nutrition disposal. It's a painful job with little respect.
  • We also learn that people are only allowed to have kids between the ages of twenty-four and thirty-one. Grandfather was one of the last to have a kid at the ripe old age of thirty-five.
  • Grandfather is excited to learn that Cassia has signed up for hiking as her summer leisure activity, and he makes her promise to bring that shiny gold compact to his Final Banquet tomorrow. Ominous.
