Book Description:
Award-winning author Mallorie Blackman tackles the issues of racism and prejudice in a world set in an alternate historical reality.

Sephy and Callum have been best friends since childhood, and now they are older and they realise they want more from each other. But the harsh realities of lives lived in a segregated society are beginning to take their toll: Callum is a nought--a second-class citizen in a world dominated by the Crosses--and Sephy is a Cross, and the daughter of one of the most powerful men in the country. The barriers they would have to cross to be together at first seem little more than minor obstacles to the two idealistic teenagers, but soon those barriers threaten not only their friendship but their lives.

Deeply disturbing and totally absorbing this novel is intriguing from the outset, with a shocking climax that packs an unforgettable punch.

PS - look at the author blurb on the back flap and you'll see why Mallorie Blackman ought to join BookCrossing!

Have enjoyed two previous books by this author - "Thief" which I really liked and "Hacker" which I quite liked. Looking forward to see which catagory this falls into.


Some time later - having read the book.
I think was even better! and may well be after the rest of the series.
