Crossed by Ally Condie
From goodreads: Rules Are Different Outside The Society
Chasing down an uncertain future, Cassia makes her way to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky--taken by the Society to his sure death--only to find that he has escaped into the majestic, but treacherous, canyons. On this wild frontier are glimmers of a different life and the enthralling promise of a rebellion. But even as Cassia sacrifices every thing to reunite with Ky, ingenious surprises from Xander may change the game once again.
Narrated from both Cassia's and Ky's point of view, this hotly anticipated sequel to Matched will take them both to the edge of Society, where nothing is as expected and crosses and double crosses make their path more twisted than ever.
This was such a great sequel to Matched! Along with the different setting, we get to see a different side of Cassia. Throughout the book she becomes stronger, more confident and more willing to take chances. It was fun to hear Ky's perspective and to learn more about his past.
I liked the new characters and plot twists, and I grew more curious to discover what the Society is up to. Ally's writing is beautiful, and at times reads like poetry. I'm still not sure who I want to see Cassia end up with, and I don't think she knows, either. I'm anxious to read the next book!
