Crossed by: Ally Condie

Publication Date: November 2011

Overview: The hotly awaited second book in the dystopian Matched trilogy
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.

My thoughts: WOW!!! Can't believe it is finally time to post this. I think I have withheld for a while. I didn't want to admit that I read it in a day and that now I can't help thinking about what is to come.
Cassia is trying to find Ky... no matter what chances she has to take. 
she ends up on a plane with the Aberrations, which she had to sneak to get in line for. I think it was a very risky choice considering the fact that everyone that landed where Ky was ended up dead. 
Ky in the mean time has escaped camp and is on the run for his life. 
I love that he is brave enough to run as well, but my question is "Does he love Cassia as much as she loves him?" 
I really don't think he does, but I could be wrong. It wouldn't be the first time. 
Xander is still my number one guy, I think he had to let her go so she could realize he was wrong.
Ky and Cassia find each other after a long journey and they end up making new friends, and losing one. 
After that they find what they are looking for only to be put to work. Cassia is back in society and Ky is flying a plane....

My rating: 5 stars


  1. I could not get into this one, I lost respect for the story and the characters!

    I'm glad you were in love with it though :)

  2. I can understand that. I actually took longer to read this than I should have, which means i had a hard time getting into it myself. But I had to have faith and although the ending left a little to be desired I loved that they found their way to each other.
