In the second installment of Ally Condie's Matched trilogy, Crossed, Cassia has finally chosen to try and break free of the Society. She has chosen Ky over Xander, but first, she must find him.
Ky has been sent to a concentration camp for aberrations, and Cassia has decided to chase after him. Forced to pretend that she too is an aberration, Cassia journeys to the carving in pursuit of Ky. Meanwhile, Ky does his best to survive, desperate to get back to Cassia. Both meet some new characters along the way, and both face extremely hard times, but nothing will stop them from continuing to look for each other. But Cassia and Ky are not the only ones who are against the harsh rules of the Society. The Rising, a rebellion designed to bring about the downfall of the government, is growing. Both must decide whether to completely desert their families and join the Rising or to go back to the safe, comfortable life they could have. What will they choose? will they succeed? Find out in Crossed, by Ally Condie.
Crossed is from both Cassia and Ky's point of view, which adds a lot more variety to the story. In my opinion, Crossed was much better than the first book in the trilogy, Matched. There was a lot more action, and the character development was a lot better. I would recommend this book to girls from 10-12.
