Crossed by Ally Condie is the second installment in Matched series. First book – Matched was a good YA read but Crossed is boring without any action. Author could have given importance to story development rather than poetry.
Crossed picks up from where Matched lets off. Ky had been sent away to the Outer Provinces and Cassia is currently residing in a girl’s work camp. Now Xander knows the truth about Ky and Cassia but still he is good to her. Cassia goes to outer province in search of Ky where she teams up with a girl named Indie, whom I found kinda sneaky and secretive. Cassia and Ky’s relation irritated me to no end, their relation was supposed to be romantic one but instead it was irritative and plain. I liked Xander better than any character and sometimes wished Cassia could have chosen him instead of Ky.
Over all it was little boring, but if you liked Matched and want to read the complete series then there is no other option. My rating: 2 out of 5. Hopefully the third book ”Reached” (published in 2012) will be better than this.
