Published by: Speak on November 1, 2011
Genre: YA, Dystopian, Romance
Synopsis: The Society chooses everything.
The books you read.
The music you listen to.
The person you love.
Yet for Cassia the rules have changed. Ky has been taken and she will sacrifice everything to find him.
And when Cassia discovers Ky has escaped to the wild frontiers beyond the Society there is hope.
But on the edge of society nothing is as it seems…
A rebellion is rising.
Review: Wow, this one was a boring one wasn’t it? Did anything really happen in this book other than Cassia going on her little mission to find Ky then finding him? I mean, he was shipped anywhere in America and she found him so easily it seems. That seemed super unrealistic. Hearing them talk about one another got on my nerves real quick. Oh Cassia, I love you, think of our poems. Oh Ky, I love him, I wonder if he thinks about poems. Poems. Poetry. Love. Blegh. That’s basically the jist of the novel.
I really kind of liked the dystopian universe that was created in the first book, Matched. However, whatever went on in this one was terrible.
I will say though the her writing is really good.
I can’t really form a review on this one as not much really happened. We do learn a few things in this one that we didn’t know in Matched but they weren’t all that shocking. I hope that the third one makes suffering through this one worth it. I will not give up. I will give it a chance!!
