Today Ally Condie revealed the cover to Crossed, which is the sequel to last year’s Matched. I love the new cover art, and I’m excited to read part two in this trilogy. One of my criticisms of Matched was that it was slow-paced and there wasn’t enough action, but I have hope that this won’t be a problem in Crossed. Here’s the official summary:
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.
Crossed will be published on November 1, 2011.
