Crossed (Mini Review)

From Goodreads: 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.


Spoiler Alert Ahead

               I loved this just as much as Matched. I love the story of a good journey. And a healthy amount of secrets to discover. Cassia, very smoothly in my opinion, sneaks into an abandoned farmland where the Enemy rains bullets down daily, to find Ky. Indie, a beautiful girl with an ulterior motive, follows her. This book has included Ky's point of view. Ky has escaped to get a message back to Cassia. I'm just sure they are never going to find each other like this. But the unfortunate death of Ky's friend has slowed them down enough for Cassia to catch up. Ky's story is an intriguing one. His lifelong love of Cassia.
                  I was awed when it was revealed that Ky was the one to put his on face on the micro card. He just wanted a chance, for Cassia to see him again. When he finally tells her, he doesn't want to go to the Rising, he's sure he lost her. As a supporter of Cassia and Team Ky, I didn't like Indie. Lying. Holding onto the Micro-card. stealing the mini port. Claiming love for Xander even though she'd never actually met him. Wanting Ky to abandon Cassia and run off to find the Rising with her.
                 And Ky was right. They had no proof of what the Rising was and what their plan was.
Ally Condie is an amazing writer. This book reads like Poetry. It flows like water. Its so pretty. In a world where they value words. It means something trust another person with their story.
