Crossed is the sequel to Matched, by Ally Condie, and is book 2 of three. Of course, the third one, Reached, does not come out until 11/13/12. Ugh. I never would have started this series if I had realized it wasn’t finished. When it comes to reading, I hate to wait.
Crossed was a good solid young adult read. The series is set in a dystopian future, and features a love triangle. Normally, by this point, I can figure out who the protagonist will end up with, but in this case, I’m not quite sure because the author tells us straight out that there’s missing information.
I’m not going to say this book is on par with The Hunger Games, but so few books can aspire to that level that it’s not fair to compare. Still, this is a fast paced read that’s good for a weekend or relaxing at the beach.
