Reached (Matched #3) by Ally Condie
Normally I'll give a bit of a summary of the book in my review, but I just feel to do too much summary would give away too much of the story. Basically Xander, Ky, Cassia, and Indie were all working for the Rising, and the pilot now, but each in their own way. Xander as an "Official" more specifically a medic type for the society. Ky as a pilot with Indie. And Cassia as a sorter. Xander ends up being in a center when the Plague begins. And is able to help a lot of people. And even is helpful when the plague mutates. Ky is able to fly the cure into villages to help save people, and later the immunizations to try to prevent the plague. In the end it is Cassia's sorting that even helps to find the true cure. Her sorting, and memories from her mother's work with plants in the past. While there are deaths that are very sad, it is part of the story, and works well. So I just have to say you probably won't be disappointed in this book if you are a fan of the trilogy. It is a good ending to the series. And was well worth the wait.
