Crossed by Ally Condie, is the second book out of the Matched trilogy. Uniquely written with a beautiful background. Cassia’s demeanor has thawed and her passion flows. In the first book in the series, Matched, Cassia seemed more robotic. Without passion and fire. In Crossed, I can see the fire burning through her and extending to each of the characters around her. I can see her mind waking up and really understand what is right in front of her. The interactions between Cassia and the other characters have grown intense. Learning about life in the outer providence Cassia looks for Ky as he is finding his way back to her. Their journey towards each other was daring, thrilling and full of clues to the past, present and future.
