Reviews

"'Noughts and Crosses is about a black girl called Sephy and a white boy called Callum and their friendship in a world that's divided by the colour of your skin, and how their feelings for each other grow as they grow older and grow up' Amazon reader's review. As Malorie Blackman herself says: 'I wanted to turn society as we know it on its head, with new names for the major divisions, i.e. Noughts (the underclass) and Crosses (the majority, ruling society). I wanted to see this new world through the eyes of the main two characters, Callum (a nought) and Sephy (a Cross).'"
