In 2010, Ally Condie captivated readers with her New York Times bestselling dystopian novel Matched – the first in a trilogy. In it, her characters Cassia, Xander and Ky discovered the highly controlling Society wasn’t what it proclaimed to be, and began their search for freedom and love.
The second novel Crossed, brought us to the outskirts of the Society, as Cassia and Ky searched for each other and the rebellion, in the hopes of finally being together, and getting answers to their many questions.
And now the third and final book, Reached has arrived. We finally get the answers to the questions that have been building during the previous novels, and see how Cassia, Ky and Xander have grown. WAMC's Katie Britton spoke with Ally Condie about Reached, and if it’s a bittersweet ending for her.
