The hotly awaited second book in the dystopian Matched trilogyIn 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.
Cassia and Ky desperately search for one another in the compelling second book of the bestselling Match trilogy. With a first-person narrative alternating between the thwarted lovers, each faces incredible challenges in the race to locate the other. After deciding to leave her official Match, Xander, and find Ky, Cassia encounters more evidence of the Society's terrible actions. A movement called the Rising deeply intrigues her, and the stirrings of revolution are exciting. At the same time, Ky is angered by it. The combination of a love triangle, dystopian society, and riveting action, along with some poetry, creates an engrossing adventure.
