In 2011’s Crossed
, Cassia left the Society to find Ky, whom she’d begun to love despite it being forbidden in their dystopic world of arranged marriages. In Reached
, the final book in Ally Condie’s Matched
trilogy, Cassia is separated from Ky again, back in the Society, working undercover for the Rising. But when the Rising begins to overthrow the Society by way of a plague that only they have the cure to, Cassia—as well as Ky and Xander, her childhood best friend and Society-engineered Match—begin to wonder who’s really behind the revolution, and if their actions will lead to a better life, or simply oppression of a different kind.
Told in alternating viewpoints of Cassia, Ky and Xander, Reached becomes almost a medical thriller at times, though at its heart remains a story of the difficulties of love and choices, and the power of art. Join the author for a reading and signing, and have your photo taken inside the bubble on a life-size cover of Reached. (Rachel Piper)
