Trilogy starts as a romance dystopian, second book leans towards sci-fi

Crossed by Ally Condie

Crossed (Matched #2)

By: Ally Condie

Genre: YA Dystopian

Pages: 367

Published: 2011

Audiobook: 9 hours and 51 mins

Read: February

2 out of 5

Although I would classify Matched as a romance dystopian novel, I found Crossed to be more sci-fi in nature, but similar to Matched it is not very unique from other YA novels in this genre. The romance triangle between Cassia, Ky and Xander continues, but the plot has more of a sci-fi twist regarding the rebellion against the Rising. Futhermore, I felt that Crossed could be marketed to teen boys that enjoy sci-fi, but will never be read by them because Crossed, doesn’t portray that angle.  Readers that read everything in the dystopian genre will definitely enjoy this trilogy. I only wish there was a creative way to get the trilogy into the boys’ hands.
