the cover of crossed!

Here it is…

It’s beautiful.

Perfect.

I love the way she has shattered the bubble and is breaking free. LOVE. It’s exactly what happens in this part of Cassia’s story.

And I love the color. (And yes, for those of you who asked, the green cover of MATCHED and the blue cover of CROSSED do represent the tablets, as well as other thematic elements in the books.)

The model, photographer, and designer are the same talented people who worked on MATCHED and I think they’ve done an incredible job.

Don’t you?

Oh, I can’t wait for November 1!

      I was sitting in the dentist office looking at Entertainment Weekly and saw an ad for Matched–I was so excited I had to tell the dental assist. that I knew the author of this book and she is from Cedar. 😉

    Cool…I love it. So fitting with the direction the story is heading. I love the “breaking the bubble” aspect and the green pill, blue pill (and presumably red pill) aspect is intriguing as well.

    So looking forward to reading this.

  • It’s so, so beautiful. I can’t wait for November. Even more to the point, I can’t wait to see the cover to the final book in the trilogy :)

    I just posted the cover on my blog for everyone to see. You really lucked out in the cover lottery!!!!! <3

    MAD COVER! I absolutely adore that this cover is a follow-up of the bubble metaphor that was used in Matched.

      Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I loved the first one because of everything it represented however the second while it still stays true to the first what made me only think this one was ok is because you can see part of the model’s face. I like the mystery behind the face. That way we can picture who we want.



  • Juan Villagrana
    March 12, 2011

    Amazing! I’m in the process of reading MATCHED right now, and I’ve kind of been waiting for the final cover of CROSSED to be released. To say that the wait was worth it is an understatement.

  • Christina Bejjani
    March 14, 2011

    Is it just me or is there a splotch of green on the blue bubble? I can’t tell, but that’d be kind of interesting if it was there like a reminder of MATCHED and the problems that were raised then. Also, I like how part of her is still pushing on the bubble, though the other part is breaking through it. That reminds me of how most of the second books in trilogies just rachet up the tension from the first book and set up the third. Anyways! Awesome cover! Looking forward to Crossed!



  • warnagirl
    March 14, 2011

    That’s very observant Christina B. I hadn’t noticed that green spot. Neato, if that’s what we are really seeing!



  • I LOVE this! So fierce!



  • Julie
    March 15, 2011

    The first book was amazing and I can’t wait for the second book and ‘popping the bubble” show she is trying to get out of the society/her old world.



  • Daryka
    March 17, 2011

    i love the backwards R and the fact that the colours go with the colours of the pills ( i guess the next book will be red)



  • Amy Sonntag

  • Nathalie

    Does that mean the third book will be red? I can’t wait to see that!

    So excited for Crossed! (I also realized that all the books have been or will be released in November. Weird!)



  • Sarah
    March 27, 2011

    OMG it’s BEUTIFUL!! I absolutely adored Matched, and I can’t wait to read Crossed!! I am also reading The Hunger Games series, and I am still amazed at how similar they are turning out to be…way to go Ally for another beautiful cover!! I guess you really can judge a book by it’s cover…this read seems like it will be as beautiful, if not more, than the cover is setting it up to be!



  • Megan
    April 2, 2011

    WOW! i literally just finished readingMatched like what?…five minutes ago. I am a readaholic. one of my adult friends (im only a teenager haha) lended me a copy of your book to read….AMAZING! i just loved it. it really kept me wanting to read more. i read during classes because i was addicted to it and i got in trouble. The second book cover looks GREAT! it goes along well with the end of the first book, how she is breaking free of the society.



  • Alejandra
