Product description

Sephy is alone and pregnant, living in an apartheid state. She ought to be close to the top of a society where dark-skinned Crosses like her have the best of everything. But her baby daughter has a Nought father, Callum. A father whom Sephy’s own father executed. Now Sephy and her unborn baby are shunned, condemned by Noughts and Crosses alike. Eaten up with bitterness, Callum’s brother Jude blames Sephy for the terrible losses his family has suffered. He wants revenge. Lives are resting on a knife edge. Will Sephy be forced, once again, to take sides?

    It is hooking, emotional and romantic. Love love love love love it! I read this when I was ten but after reading it I definitely thought you should be in secondary school before reading it! But it is great if you are old enough and I would definitely recommend it! X Lingo:)

    A very touching book, although I would definitely not recommend this book to anybody under the age of 13. But an excellent book for teenagers and young adults

    Amazing sequel to Noughts and Crosses. I love how Malorie put the Crosses in power to retell the discrimination between black and white people.
