book review: "crossed" by ally condie

"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" (Google).

This second book was harder for me to read than Matched. I didn't feel as compelled to find out what would happen next. A big difference in this book from the first is that both Ky and Cassia take turns telling it from their point of view. While I like the change in perspective, I also had to keep reminding myself of who was currently talking and I felt that it sometimes took away from the story. There were still twists throughout the story and plenty of action but I just felt a little lost. I'm still excited about the final book coming out this fall but this second book was a bit of a letdown for me...
