In this third installment of the Matched series, Cassia and Ky thought they found what they were looking for, only to be pushed toward losing one another again.

Having left Society in search of the Rising and Ky, Cassia is a spy now for the Rising and is placed within the Society to perform her duties. Yet Ky is left outside the borders. Unpredictable as it ever was, the veil is lifted and a change of tides begins anew.

Can Cassia reconcile her confined life with doing what is right? Is freedom possible while still honoring a love she might lose again? Find out in Reached, this conclusion to the number one bestselling New York times trilogy.

Ally Condie is an American novelist whose bestselling Matched was published in 2010. The following two books, Crossed, and Reached have also made the New York Times best seller lists for the Children's Chapter Books section. Reached has been optioned by Walt Disney and the foreign rights to this book have been sold to thirty countries. Matched, receiving starred reviews from Kirkus and Publisher's Weekly, was also chosen as one of YALSA's 2011 Teens' Top Ten, named as one of Publisher's Weekly's Best Children's Books of 2010, and was selected as the #1 Pick on the Winter Kid's Indie Next List. Kirkus gave this accolade to the Matched series: "an addictive, layered dystopic trilogy." Originally a teacher of English, Condie received her degree from Brigham Young, a Mormon university. She currently lives in Salt Lake City, Utah with her husband and four children.

Cassia’s journey began with an error, a momentary glitch in the otherwise perfect façade of the Society. After crossing canyons to break free, she waits, silk and paper smuggled against her skin, ready for the final chapter.

The wait is over.

One young woman has raged against those who threaten to keep away what matters most—family, love, choice. Her quiet revolution is about to explode into full-scale rebellion.

With exquisite prose, the emotionally gripping conclusion to the bestselling Matched trilogy returns Cassia, Ky, and Xander to the Society to save the one thing they have been denied for so long—the power to choose.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffany | 2/13/2014

    " I thought this one was the best of the series! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angela | 2/8/2014

    " Very anticlamatic ending. I had a very hard time finishing this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chantelle Major | 2/4/2014

    " Not the best one out of the series but it was good "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 1/16/2014

    " I think the author is really talented, and her writing was poetic, in a way. But almost overkill. I wasn't a huge fan of the whole "triangle", but I never am (the girls always choose wrong). At least the girl didn't flip flop around. I also didn't like that all of the characters have the same cadence and rhythm to their thoughts. It made it hard to distinguish personality. It felt like they all thought in the same whimsical, broken way. It fit well with Cassia's personality, but not with the others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/16/2014

    " I liked it and I think it ended well. Much better then the second book, which for me was hard to get through. She ended the series well :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bethany | 1/8/2014

    " Had to finish the series, you know? Overall, the series is compelling - you do care about the characters, but it has a slightly unfinished quality - like the author is sure you understand things, so she never full sets the exposition. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leanne | 1/8/2014

    " I did not like this book as much as the first two. I actually became sick of the character and didn't really care how they ended up. I was so glad when it was over. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 1/2/2014

    " The best of the trilogy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 12/27/2013

    " Repetitive and anti-climactic. Glad to be done with this series. There are SO many better dystopian YA series out there... Don't waste your time with this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alisha Pulsipher | 12/20/2013

    " An enjoyable conclusion to the trilogy. Not great but a fun read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amie Anderson | 12/2/2013

    " ****Spoilers****What was supposed to be some epic love between Cassia and Ky- did not come through at all. I couldn't get myself to care about their relationship. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Foy | 12/1/2013

    " Very anticlimactic ending! Left me feeling cheated somehow! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren Ozanich | 12/1/2013

    " Good series, I liked the "not finished" ending. This last book was a little hard to follow, lots of jumping around with speakers, etc, but overall good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cora Linn | 11/30/2013

    " I think this is the best of the Matched trilogy. Everything seemed to come together, to mature, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable read as well as being a satisfying end to the trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karin | 11/30/2013

    " Decent end to the trilogy but not outstanding by any means. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carmen Ortega | 11/19/2013

    " I thought that this was the best book of the trilogy. Ultimately, I like Xander better, but I still enjoy reading about Cassia and Ky. Cassia really blossoms into her own character who is willing to risk it all to be with the people she loves. This was a wonderful ending to a lovely series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Celeste | 8/25/2013

    " After waiting a while to finish the series, I really enjoyed this book. My only problems with it were the length and the switching between points of view. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracey MacCallum | 7/26/2013

    " Better than Book 2. In fact, you can probably skim Book 2 and be fine. The series was okay, but no Divergent. If you haven't read that, read it instead. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mandy McHenry | 7/7/2013

    " Just really didn't like this one. Writing was just ok. The story was on the lame side. I felt the series really went downhill with each book. Matched was my favorite. I think the writing style is what bugged me the most. Beautiful, but it doesn't fit the dystopian theme very well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan Hunter | 6/5/2013

    " Good, but bogged down a little in the middle. I'm glad I finished this series. Overall, pleased with the ending and the general plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annette Frost | 5/8/2013

    " I enjoyed this series, and it was worth the read and the wait. But I didn't feel like it necessarily ended and I hate that. I would like to know what happens to these characters next. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine Wieberdink | 2/2/2013

    " Again outstanding. Some have complained of the pacing of this book, but I liked it very much. Her writing is simply exquisite and the story is creative and new. Much better than most "young adult" fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/9/2013

    " I must say, I liked this one a lot better than I liked Crossed. It's still no hunger games, and I wasn't crazy about having 3 different narrators, especially since they all 3 sounded exactly the same. But overall it was a decent finish to an okay series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nora Kingman | 12/28/2012

    " I have to say that I was disappointed. I was really excited about getting this book, but I couldn't even finish it. :((that's my sad face) "
