Review: Crossed (Matched #2)

Crossed (Matched) by Ally Condie

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:
In Matched we are introduced to the Society where everything is planned out for a person, including what they eat, their profession, and who they marry. Crossed picks up where Matched left off. Cassia leaves the Society in search of Ky. This book alternates between Cassia's point of view and Ky's, which increases the tension, as neither of them knows where the other is. We also see that Ky is keeping some secrets. The end seemed a little anti-climactic to me, but I am looking forward to reading the final book due out in November. (Reached is available to pre-order.)
