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.

I enjoyed Matched and I knew by the ending of Matched that Crossed would have to be different. But it was very slow, I did enjoy it more towards the end but just as I finally got interested it ended. I will read the final book because I have come this far in the series and the ending to this book makes me want to find out what happens. If you read Matched, you should read Crossed, just be prepared that its slow. I also I didn't like the voice of Kyle...
The story is fragmented and meanders along at disjointed pace. I found myself not really caring about what happened to the main characters
the Matched trilogy is obviously a take off on Hunger Games which I absolutely loved. I had high hopes for Crossed after devouring Matched, but the odd pacing and disjointed action made it so that I had to force myself to continue listening. If you like this genre, try A Discovery of Witches and Delirium.
Too many to count
When I discovered Audible it was like discovering love :-) I love receiving codes and in return I post reviews. Wife, and mom of two,
In the second book Crossed, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in search for Ky. Ky had been taken by the Society to fight or be killed. When Cassia finally finds the last place Ky had been but discovered Ky had also escaped. She had no choice but to find clues so she could find him. This leads Cassia to question the Society and their rules. She knew it was Ky she was suppose to have a future with and not Xander. Even still to be with Ky meant rebellion and betrayal. It seemed nothing suprised her about the Society anymore, like double crossing the others and leading Ky and the rest to their death. Just like the first book Matched, Crossed is beautifully written, touching, and intelligent. Absolutely brilliantly written and I can't wait for the third book in the series, Reached.
Much like the 1st book this one has a good idea but never gets there. The main character diverts so much from who she was in the 1st book that its hard to keep in mind she was the same person.
More of the guys voice
NOTHING LIKE THE HUNGER GAMES
