Condie, Ally. Reached. Penguin, 2012.

The Society is still in charge, but the Rising is working to overturn it.  Cassia, Ky, and Xander are all in the rising, but they don't know it yet. The Rising introduces a plague, but begins to provide cures to those who are infected.  Soon, however, the plague mutates, and the Rising has no cure for the mutation.  People are dying, the world is devolving into chaos; how will Cassia, Ky, and Xander survive?

I listened to this as an audio book, and I really enjoyed the narrators. Having a different narrator for each of the main characters made it much easier to follow the story, and I was curious to find out what had happened to Cassia, Ky, and Xander.  There was still far too much of Cassia mooning over Kai in her chapters, and I still like the first book the best, but I did enjoy this book overall.
