Crossed  - Ally Condie

tl;dr This book was terrible and boring. [[MORE]]

I hated this book. I hated reading it, I was bored from the beginning and just knew it wouldn't get any better. But I decided after the first one I was committed, that I wanted to see this series through because I wanted to see how they would beat the Society, how they would overthrow this terribly controlling government.
