‘The Noughts & Crosses series are still my favourite books of all time and showed me just how amazing story-telling could be’ STORMZY ‘I grew up reading her. It was one of the few books about black people, so I felt seen.’ CANDICE CARTY-WILLIAMS
‘The most original book I’ve ever read’ BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH“Malorie Blackman is absolutely amazing … [Noughts & Crosses] really spoke to me, especially as a woman of dual heritage.” ZAWE ASHTON
My name is Callie Rose. My mum is a Cross – one of the so-called ruling elite. My dad was a Nought. My dad was a murderer. My dad was a terrorist. These facts are the only things that are mine and real. So I don’t mind so much that I’m leaving it all behind. There’s nothing here worth holding onto.
Sixteen years have passed since Sephy Hadley first met Callum McGregor – and the hate that divided them turned to hope. But the world hasn’t changed quickly enough for their daughter, Callie Rose.
Growing up dual heritage in a world where bitter prejudice divides Noughts and Crosses has meant she’s an outsider wherever she turns.
Enter Jude McGregor. Jude teaches Callie about her real family history, and the more she learns the more he persuades her where her loyalties really lie.
But soon Callie is caught in a trap she can’t get out of – one which will have deadly consequences.
Voted as one of the UK’s best-loved books, Malorie Blackman’s Noughts & Crosses series is a seminal piece of YA fiction; a true modern classic.
