    I really enjoyed reading your creative process for Cassia’s name, especially knowing that Cassia wasn’t your first choice. I really like her name and I loved the bit about the essential oils. It fits cassia’s character perfectly and really helps you imagine her more clearly.

    Matched was absolutely amazing! I read it in 2 days right when i got ny hands on it! But of course I read it over and over again because it was so good! I’m so excited that crossed came out today! I read the first few chapters today at school! I love the meaning of Cassia and also how it is a very uncommon, unique name! I love reading and it is such an adventure to read your books Ally Condie!:) I love you! You are such an inspiration to my writing!

    I seldom comment, however I looked at a ton of responses here crossed blog tour: day one || allyson condie. I do have some questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be only me or does it look as if like some of these remarks appear as if they are coming from brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional places, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of all your social community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
