Sephy is a Cross - a member of the dark-skinned ruling class. Callum is a nought - a 'colourless' member of the underclass who were once slaves to the Crosses. The two have been friends since early childhood. But that's as far as it can go. Until the first steps are taken towards more social equality and a limited number of Noughts are allowed into Cross schools... Against a background of prejudice and distrust, intensely highlighted by violent terrorist activity by Noughts, a romance builds between Sephy and Callum - a romance that is to lead both of them into terrible danger...

    " Ahh... what can I say? I actually got too emotionally attached to this book, it really did effect me and the story related to me massively! Anyway, fantastic book and very very well written "

    " Starts badly - predictable and amused by its own not-so-clever inversion of race politics. Some of the language jars (the use of "ruddy" as an intensifier seems very unlikely). Then, eventually, plot takes over and the protagonists grow up a little and stop saying things like "Is this what it is like to grow up?" and then some genuinely interesting situations are contrived. The book becomes a real page-turner towards the end but I do wonder how many literate youngsters will be genuinely taught anything by this book. Given this, i still intend to look out the sequel and I have to say, the ending does justify much of the "puff" in getting where it was going. Frustratingly, i think this is due to the likelihood of sequelling rather than a genuinely bold conclusion on the part of the writer but nonetheless, I personally enjoyed the conclusion very mush. "

    " Another great book ruined by it's conclusion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Savannah Harriott | 2/3/2014

    " This book is brilliant sculptured perfectly and keeps you hooked until the end i'm 13 but believe that it can be read by adults and still be enjoyable. i have also just finished the second book knife edge in two days and cant wait to read the next one Malorie Blackman is and awesome writer and i look forward to reading her other titles. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kira Gould | 1/30/2014

    " The moment i finished this book i burst out crying , heart wrenching tears for what could have been, but would never be. For the pain; injustice; brutality. This book though not being completely smooth and easy going, is the truth and teaches the reader about how it would feel. How would you feel? What would you do? How can you judge? You can't. My criticism is that i wish the book would have been more in depth about periods in the book which were skipped over: her school period; his L.M stint and months away- and it felt somehow rushed. Despite this the ending was although sad, absolutely brilliant: though i secretly wish for another. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liddy Brankley | 1/20/2014

    " One of the most amazing books i've ever read. It's heartbreaking, i've reread it so many times and it never fails to make me cry. Sephy and Callum have the most amazing relationship. Read this book, you won't regret it. Promise. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sallya khan | 1/13/2014

    " this books is the best its the modern romeo+juliet "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andreea Tanase | 12/26/2013

    " Wonderful. It won a children's literature award, but I recommend it to all adults as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mellow | 12/26/2013

    " This book, along with the rest of the series, were extrememly brilliant. It is very hard to choose correct words to describe this book, but if you read it, you would understand that it speaks for itself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Geneva * Yuki-Aoi :3* | 12/3/2013

    " this book helps you see things from a different prespective, i loved it although the ending is sad it's a beautiful love story "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sarah Kennedy | 5/25/2013

    " This was just awful. It doesn't even deserve one star. It was sickening wishy-washy emo rubbish, ponderously slow. I gave up about two thirds of the way in. Really disappointing - I'd expected great things. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn | 2/18/2013

    " A fantastic concept for a story, frightening. A sort of modern day Romeo and Juliet between races. Fabulous and looking forward to the sequels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 alexandra | 11/5/2012

    " This is a simplistic and even dated novel exploring racism. Perhaps it's inventive in the UK, but it feels like it just mimics US racism with the addition of switching the races: Noughts=caucasian underclass who are former slaves and Crosses= ruling class. "

    " Wonderful book, cried at the end. Recommend it to anyone. Extremely heartbreaking "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Torii | 3/29/2012

    " I really enjoyed this book. I think it could have been better, a little more deatail when it came to descriptions, especailly with Callum and Sephy becasue I never really got a clear vision of what Callumand Sephy looked like. Yeah, it depicted physical appearance but not details. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey Speers | 3/3/2012

    " Really great story, but there's not a ton of creativity going on in my opinion, so it's not the most memorable for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karla | 12/13/2011

    " When I started this book, I was immediately disheartened by the very short chapters and the back and forth POV. Also, it sort-of had a didactic feel to it, but shortly I was hooked and must say that this is one of the best books I've ever read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashleigh | 11/12/2011

    " This book was one of the most amazing books I have ever read. I have never got so emotional over any character, which lead me to tears in the end. Excellent read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chloe Macree | 10/31/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meherin | 4/23/2011

    " This was a great idea for a novel and a gripping read. However, I felt as though the story and characters could have been developed a bit more. They seemed two dimensional at times. "
