At the end of Matched, Cassia’s world completely crumbled. Her family and Ky have all been sent away from the safe community she has always known. Now in search of Ky, Cassia has found her way to the Outer Provinces. After discovering a lead, Cassia along with another girl, Indie, escapes from the Society to follow Ky into the wilderness. There Cassia learns about the possibilities of a different life. But all is not in her control as she begins to question much of what she holds dear.
I was uncertain what to expect from this book because so many sequels can be disappointing especially if you really enjoyed the first book. I am happy to report that fans will be very satisfied with this highly anticipated follow up to Matched. I especially enjoyed Cassia’s growth and development.
