Population levels have reached critical, forcing the government to step in. A new system is built - an assigned mate for 16-year-olds, one child per family, all done with computer algorithm. Careers are determined for what job is needed and best suited for. Any deviation and they face the risk of becoming a Lower--the unwanted dregs of society. Or sometimes something far worse.
    
    Rebecca hates the system. She's paired with a cookie cutter human called Jake, sees her dream job given away to a liar, and is forced to work in endless code as a programmer. Nothing is what she would choose for herself.
    
    When she and a boy with many secrets, Scott, discover a flaw in the system, they realize they can change everything. Jake can be with his real love. Rebecca can be a librarian. Society can be turned on it's head with the sweep of a key stroke. If they're caught, they face a fate far worse than becoming a Lower.

Nice start! This chapter was very good. I like the matching part of it, even if it’s similar to Matched. I could sense a few cliches but  cliches aren’t necessarily bad in moderation. I really enjoy your style of writing!

You write perfectly for this kind of story and explain the rules of the society without making it seem like you're listing them off or forcing them in
Society? Expiration Date? Sounds familiar, anyone? 😹😹😹

Wow. This is good. Very descriptive. A little too much, but still done really well.
