“Readers will not be disappointed by this follow-up to the #1 Indie Next pick Matched, as Cassia follows her forbidden love Ky to the outer edges of the Society, hoping to prevent what seems to be his inevitable death. In alternating chapters from each character's point of view, we are drawn deeper into the mystery of the Society, about which Ky knows much more than he's ever let on. Being banished to the outer provinces is actually a return home for Ky, and his previous experiences may be the best chance he and Cassia have to survive the rough terrain. For that to happen, though, Cassia has to find him, and if she finds him, will her sacrifices be enough to keep them together?”
— Whitney Spotts, Schuler Books & Music, Lansing, MI
Praise for Crossed:
“Cassia and Ky grapple with secrets, wilderness and the tumultuous meanings of love in the second installment of this addictive, layered dystopic trilogy… Although two-boys-one-girl triangles run rife in this genre, Condie’s is complicated and particularly human, involving real emotional scars… Both rich and easy to digest, this will leave fans hungry for the third book.” - Kirkus, starred review
“Told in alternating chapters from their points of view, the book gives readers full access to the hearts and minds of two memorable characters. Their needs, love, and internal conflicts are palpable. Their voices are distinct and authentic, and the writing is often poetic.” - School Library Journal
“This is more than just a placeholder between the first and last parts of a trilogy… Condie effectively sets the stage for the final chapter in Cassia’s story by leaving the reader hanging at the end of the book. Matched fans will devour this book and be eager for the concluding one.” - VOYA
“…vivid, poetic writing… Condie immerses readers in her characters’ yearnings and hopes.” - Publishers Weekly
