Description of this Book

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.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Both rich and easy to digest, this will leave fans hungry for the third book. - Kirkus, starred review <br> Condie delves into the inner lives of her characters, plumbing their pasts, confronting their beliefs... - Booklist <br> Told in alternating chapters from their points of view, the book gives readers full access to the hearts and minds of two memorable characters. Their needs, love, and internal conflicts are palpable. Their voices are distinct and authentic, and the writing is often poetic. - School Library Journal <br> This is more than just a placeholder between the first and last parts of a trilogy...Condie effectively sets the stage for the final chapter in Cassia's story by leaving the reader hanging at the end of the book. Matched fans will devour this book and be eager for the concluding one. - VOYA <br> If you are feeling Katniss withdrawal, check out a new dystopian world where husbands are assigned and no one is free. - Seventeen Maga
