Yet for Cassia the rules have changed. Ky has been taken and she will sacrifice everything to find him.

And when Cassia discovers Ky has escaped to he wild frontiers beyond the Society there is hope.

But on the edge of society nothing is as it seems . . .


And a tangled web of lies and double-crosses could destroy everything.(less)


I'm reading this book for three reasons. One, I really like Matched. Two, I wanted to see Ky's piont of view and third, I wanted to see why people didn't like this book.

Before the book starts there's a note from Allie saying that most of this is in Ky's veiw and I got excited by how she was going to do it and the on the first chapter was Ky's perspective of veiw it was strange but I still thought Cassia's point of view is better.

The only thing that kept me reading this book was 1) I wanted to know what happens in this book and 2) I needed to know what happens to read the third book.

When I read Crossed it sounds as if I'm reading poetry and if you don't know I don't really like reading poetry; it's complicated and confusing. I like to read fiction! Crossed does have some parts of Matched. How Classia and Ky describe the Society, for example. Which I did like because I wanted to know wha the Society was going to do about Cassia and Ky.

I kept on skipping paragraphs and let me tell you I didn't do it it in excitement, I did it in boredom and I wanted to get to the good bits.

However, after reading the first few chapters I got used to Ally's style of writing and it also started to make sense, although, I still skipped paragraphs to finish this book-not in excitement. Xandra, Cassia's match, is still after her. Which confused me because I thought Classic was all for Ky and Ky for Classia. This girl, Indie, is frustrating I tell you! she hits on Ky and then she likes Xander and i'm like Hello? Weren't you Just hitting on Ky?!  

Things I liked In this book was the blue tablets. Someone told Ky that the blue tablets make you weak and then you die and I was like 'oh my god! Does Cassia know?!'. Then, on the next chapter which was Cassia's pov, she went to a museum and asked for information. You know throne where you say I want information and then they give you what they want-which, by the way, I want to do someday. But for some reason she gives away Ky's precious artifact and I was like 'Nooo! What are you doing girl?! Why didn't you give that stupid blue tablet that that stupid Xandra gave you!' However, I liked it that way, because at least we have some drama in this book.

My rating:

Only tea? No snacks or biscuits?!
