“Waiting on” Wednesday | Crossed by Ally Condie
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine.
My pick for this week is:
by Ally Condie
November 1st 2011 by Dutton Juvenile
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.
If I have to explain why I want to read this, then you definitely need to pick up a copy of Matched….and soon! <wink wink> I cannot wait to find out what happens to Cassia, Ky and Xander and to discover what life is like on the fringes of Society! Squee!
AND guess what the hubs found on EW.com this morning? The first two chapters of Crossed!
What are you “squeeing” about this Wednesday?
