My feelings: -
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
After reading Matched and finding it very disappointing, I really wanted to give Crossed a try. You never know you like series unless you try the second book, right? Well, I tried my friends. I tried!
Crossed was even worse than Matched. It was even more boring than the first book. Nothing ever happened. The description says Cassia finds clues to where Ky is, well I read the book and I only find one stupid clue. One! The pace was super slow. It took me forever to finish this book. Also I never, NEVER, felt the danger that these characters were in. They were scared that they would be catched, but seriously no one was chasing them. The people of the Society probably don’t even cared enough about them to chase them around. Seriously! And then at the end they become rebels. What! They don’t have special skills. Okay, Cassia can sort things. Wooohoo, big deal. And then we have the love triangle, that is totally lame. I’m not even sure if these boys know why they like Cassia. Ugh.
In all, I just don’t like this series. I tried, I really did.
