Noughts and Crosses

by
  • (17 reviews)

    Malorie Blackman's ground-breaking, award winning series charts the lives and loves of generations as it takes on race and equality with breath-taking drama and heart wrenching sadness. Set in an alternate reality, where the inferior Noughts live as second class citizens in a world run by Crosses, the four books explore the violent politics of a unstable world, and the ordinary lives caught up in in its terror. Beginning with Noughts and Crosses - and the romance of Seph and Callum - and ending with Double Cross, it is a gripping sequence, and an important, relevant story for our time.
