Crossed by Ally Condie

 Matched Trilogy Book 2
3.5 Stars
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.

Description from

My Thoughts; I can't really decide if I love this series. It is a really good read and I have enjoyed both books so far, but, this genre is really not my cup of tea. In the intrest of being unbias I will say, if you enjoyed the Hunger Games Trilogy then I think you will enjoy this series as well.

   Like Hunger Games, this series is based in a future where we are all governed by a "society rule" we are told what to wear, what to eat, how much to eat, where to live and what our job will be. There is no income, however, your job is your contribution to the society. Everyone lives in indentical homes, and wear identical clothes. And as you learn in Matched, you are even told who you will marry, how many kids you will have and when. You even know the exact date you will die.

  Cassia had decided she doesn't like the way things are and has went out not only in search of Ky but also in search of a rebellion that IMO she has become obsessed with. I don't feel that there is much depth to the characters but they are all "likeable". This series may not be on my, Most highly recommended list but I do think it is a pretty good read and for those that enjoy this genre it is probably awesome. ;)

Happy Reading!! :-)
