My Review: I wasn't at all thrilled with this book. It was a bit too choppy for my taste and I ended up just skimming the rest of the book looking for key ideas in the plot. Only I didn't find much. And I guess I must have missed a lot while reading "Crossed" because I don't remember half of the stuff that is mentioned in "Reached".
I'm not a huge fan of this writing style. It leaves me wanting more...conversations out loud rather than internal monologue all the time. I actually prefer her LDS adult books she's written to these. It almost seemed like she was trying too hard to finish this series off with a bang. Only it was more of a fizzle. Matched  was promising and then the series just went down from there when the sequel came out. I guess I'm just not a fan of this series.
