Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It features out most anticipated books. This week, my pick is Crossed by Ally Condie.
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.
Why I Can't Wait: Since I'm a fan of Matched, do you really question why I can't wait? If you've read Matched, you know it leaves you with a cliffhanger. I need to know what happened to Ky and where Cassia's journey will take her. I also want to read more about the wonderful world Ally Condie built. Plus, I'm totally digging the cover. Sometimes pictures speak louder than words, and this cover is screaming at me.
Expected publication: November 1st 2011 by Dutton Juvenile
