Chasing down an uncertain future, Cassia makes her way to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky–taken by Society to his certain death–only to find that he has escaped into the majestic, but treacherous, canyons. On this wild frontier are glimmers of a different life . . . and the enthralling promise of rebellion. But even as Cassia sacrifices everything to reunite with Ky, ingenious surproses from Xander may change the game. On the edge of Society, nothing is as expected, and crosses and double crosses make Cassia’s path more twisted than ever.
Have you ever thought about doing something crazy for the person you love? Do think you would risk your own life to chase after shadows of what could be? Is it worth it to risk everything you know for that person? Well in the book Crossed by Ally Condie Cassia will risk her whole society. This book is about a girl named Cassia who breaks the rules to find the guy she loves named Ky, this is the second book in the Matched trilogy. I loved the wonderful characters, amazing setting, and the well thought out theme.
I loved all the amazing and wonderful characters. I am in awe the way she makes me feel like I know the characters on a whole new level. She gives me so much detail about all the characters. She really goes in depth about them all. When something happens to the characters if it is something along the lines of one of them dying I am all tore apart. I really feel as if I know them personally.
This book took place in the Outer Provididence. The way Ally Condie described it seemed like the Grand Canyons. So it could have taken place in Arizona. She used so much detail, I started to picture it in my head after the first few sentences. The only difference between the Grand Canyons and this setting was it seemed more beautiful. If it were a real place I would go live there. She doesn’t only use one of the characters point of view, which is one thing I love so much. I get the chance of looking at it from almost all the characters eyes which is amazing!
The theme of this book is amazing. I think it is about a girl doing anything and everything that she possibly can to save the person she loves. Sometimes I will be reading a book and the theme of it will be very confusing and hard for me to comprehend. I never like to throw a good book down, but sometimes I have to cause the author can’t keep on one story line. Ally Condie did an amazing job of staying with them same thing, and keeping it interesting for me as the reader.
This book is fantastic, amazing, and wonderful. I loved everything about it not just the characters, setting, and theme. Those things were my favorite parts about the book though. Ally Condie can write amazingly. She is a great dystopian writer. I am already reading her third and last book reached! So get ready for my book review on it!
