In the second book in the Matched trilogy, we find Ky and Cassia where we left off. Ky is at a work camp with his new buddy Vick and Cassia is also at a work camp with her new friend Indie. When Cassia finds a way to "escape" she's determined to find Ky.
I liked the alternating perspectives of Ky and Cassia because it let me know what both were feeling at the same time. Then, chapter nine and ten really drew me in. I won't tell you what happened, but it was crazy! I was at the edge of my mental seat mentally shouting! I couldn't believe what happened.
This book was really great! I did feel like this book was very different from Matched because everything was new - new places, new people, new situations, new everything. But I loved situations the characters found themselves in and I thought on the whole it was a great second book. I enjoyed reading about the canyons the most - it sounded like a really beautiful place, even if it was pretty desolate.
I'll admit, Ky's relationship with Cassia left me a little confused. They weren't on the same page when it came to certain things, yet they were still supposed to be very in love. I didn't get any sort of "we're in love" energy out of them. I would have liked to have seen more sexual tension to solidify their relationship because I don't get why they're in love.
Four stars! Crossed was a great follow up to Matched, but I felt like the middle dragged on a little bit. I'm really excited to see how things work out in the next book! If you haven't started this series yet, you really need to take a look.
