Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Ugh, a really bad sequel!"

    I can't even believe this is the same author. I had loved Matched so much that I recommended it to family and friends, thinking it would be the next Hunger Games. Maybe that was the case for the first book, but the second was downright painful. I forced myself to finish it, and gritted my teeth the entire time. It was like all of a sudden the characters became big potheads or something. There was way to much poetry and philosophy and flowery language and waxing poetic. And I really disliked the boy narrator for Ky. He had their weird forced whisper tone throughout the whole thing that was way too melodramatic and reminded me of Peter Brady auditioning for a play. I hate being so harsh in a review, and I will listen to the the final book in the trilogy when it comes out. I just hope it's just Kate Simses narrating, and that it's way more straightforward and action packed.

    "Pretty good dystopian JA fiction read"

    Book #2 (of a planned 3?) to Matched. Vague sketches of the Society are flushed out, but I am worried that this trilogy will end up like the Maze Runner: first two books are interesting enough but the third will fail to tie up all loose ends tantalizingly introduced in the first two books. We will see. One reviewer wanted more romance – are we kidding?! It was sort of Barbara Cartland for teens – rather annoying and a bit concerning given the target age of the reader. But, nevertheless, this is an interesting story of another dystopian society with oppressed teens searching for a way to be free.

    "Better than the first"

    This still isn't a complete story. The author should have just printed it all in one book. But this book has more going on than the first book so it kept me entertained.

    "slow to start, but get good"
    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I thought the performance was very slow. I actually ended up listening to most of the book on 1.5x speed.

    Story
    "About 9 hours of not much at all"
    What would have made Crossed better?

    The story was very slow, and the character/story development had stalled from the first book


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She seemed overly young, but that wasn't terrible in the first book. The make narrator, however, just drove me crazy. Melodramatic.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Crossed?

    Everything between the camp at the beginning and the end, with the exception of the scenes in the town.

    "3.5-3.75 stars"

    3.5-3.75 stars. The story dragged a little in some places. It's clear this trilogy should have been condensed into a single book, but the story and the characters are still interesting enough that I want to see how it ends.

    "Enjoyable science fiction"

    I Enjoyed the story and reading although it leaned a little more to the romance genre than I usually like.
