Review: Crossed

Title:  Crossed
Author:  Ally Condie
Series:  The Matched Trilogy [2]
Rating:  4/5


In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky - taken by the Society to his certain death - only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake. Cassia's quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. 

But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander - who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia's heart - change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.


I can't decide if I like this or the first book more.  Where this one has more action and more drama, the first one had more introspective into how the world seems.

I did enjoy, however that the characters were spread out.  This meant that when we got different chapters from different points of view it meant we were almost sure to see a completely different setting, not just a different view on the same events.

My greatest love for this series is the class poetry weaved into the story-line.  I think it's despicable to choose but 100 poems to keep, and always look forward to what poems Cassie and crew have found and how they have interpreted the words.

This book left me desperate for the third one to be released.

Recommended to anyone who has read the first book, and enjoys the dystopian teen fiction genre.
