Title: Crossed
Author: Ally Condie
Pages: 367
Language: G
Content: G
Level: Middle/High School
Recommendation: Good Read

Summary:  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.  

Review:  I really enjoyed the first novel in this series.  The second was sure to be a win, but now I'm reconsidering how much I enjoy the plot.  I thought that the characters were developed well throughout this novel and the plot seemed to be well developed, but I was left wishing there was an alternative ending.  I hope the third book can save the series for Condie's fans!  I would and do recommend this book for young adults because the content is very appropriate and the characters are lovable.
