Review, Synopsis, and Summary of the Young adult Fiction Crossed

Crossed is a young adult fiction novel by Ally Condie. It is the most awaited sequel of the novel ‘’Matched’’ and another amazing part of the trilogy. The novel established mental mystery and emotional aspects well written and presented in this book. Condie says that the story idea came from figures who go to third world countries to make a difference. It aims to explain how it feels to live out of context. She suggests that these people suffer a lot and someone should fix all this.

Review and Summary of The Novel Crossed

***Warning Spoilers Below This Point***

It is the sequel of my most loved novel ‘’Matched’’ I desperately waited for. However, ‘’Crossed’’ is not as action-packed as readers expected it to be, but still, it offers a worth-reading plot and storyline.

The novel revolves around Cassia, who discovers Ky in a labour camp positioned far from her dictating world. She experienced a lot of tough times and harsh situations in this environment. Cassia meets Indie in one of the labour camps and they became friends. To find Ky, she instead of going for a permanent job assignment in another city reaches a no-man’s-land to chase after Ky. They discover a famous rebellion named the Rising, but Ky is afraid of it. She asks Cassia not to go there.

However, Cassia insists to go according to the map and find the Rising. When both of them reach the river, Ky goes to the Rising to live with Cassia forever. Cassia returned to society and became a spy.  The novel contains many new characters with old ones presentable of different attitudes and revealing colours. It narrates from Cassia’s and Ky’s viewpoints that make you feel their feelings of desperation.

Final Say on The Novel Crossed

Ally Condie depicted the story of Cassia’s journey in this novel, in order to find the one she actually leans for. In the last book, she became confused among her two matches while in this book, she abruptly wants to join Ky.

The novel is overall a great piece of writing, however, with limited action scenes. So I rated the book as 7 out of 10. Will, I read this novel again? Yes, I really enjoyed the story, and I will read it again.
