Razor Bill, Penguin, 2011. ISBN: 9780141333069.
(Age: 14+) Highly recommended. 'The Society chooses everything. The books you read. The music you listen to. The person you love. Yet for Cassia the rules have changed. Ky has been taken and she will sacrifice everything to find him. And when Cassia discovers Ky has escaped to the wild frontiers beyond the society, there is hope. But on the edge of society nothing is as it seems . . . A rebellion is rising. And a tangled web of lies and double-crosses could destroy everything.' Product description.
When I got this book I literally ran around the house jumping and screaming. The sequel to Matched, Ally Condie has taken the story to new levels with a few new characters and more in depth views of the settings. I can honestly say that I will be internet stalking her for the rest of my life. Ally is my new favourite author. I sincerely hope she continues her writing career and I cannot wait until her third book comes out.
