This week I am waiting on:
Crossed (Matched #2) by Ally Condie
November 1, 2011 - Dutton
"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."
Why I Want It: I enjoyed the first book, Matched, though I felt like it absolutely screamed "first in a series," because it was a lot of background and build up, with not a lot of action and intensity. I am really excited for this second book because I think it will have a bigger payoff and a bit more excitement. I love the premise of the story, and want to see how everything turns out.
