Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Winter 2012 Kids' Next List
“Readers will not be disappointed by this follow-up to the #1 Indie Next pick Matched, as Cassia follows her forbidden love Ky to the outer edges of the Society, hoping to prevent what seems to be his inevitable death. In alternating chapters from each character's point of view, we are drawn deeper into the mystery of the Society, about which Ky knows much more than he's ever let on. Being banished to the outer provinces is actually a return home for Ky, and his previous experiences may be the best chance he and Cassia have to survive the rough terrain. For that to happen, though, Cassia has to find him, and if she finds him, will her sacrifices be enough to keep them together?”
-- Whitney Spotts, Schuler Books & Music, Lansing, MI


Description
The hotly awaited second book in the dystopian Matched trilogy
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.
