Callum is a Nought- an inferior white citizenin a society controlled by the black Crosses.
Sephy is a Cross- and the daughter of one of the most powerful, ruthless men in the country.
In there hostile world, Noughts and Crosses simply don't mix. But when Sephy and Callums childhood friendship grows into a passionate love, they,re determined to find a way to be together.
AND THEN THE BOMB EXPLODES...
This book is breathtaking, the way it is written and the way it shows the anger and heartbreak of war and split. The characters are so easy to like or dislike there is no inbetween. I have very very strong opinions about racism and predujiced and this book has so much of this and the struggle to change it that i could really relate to Sephy and Callums struggle. My fave character is Sephy, now at first you might find her a bit whiney, a bit moaney, niave, dependent on others, but thats what made me like her so much at the end, at the end she becomes a strong independant woman who has to deal with the deaths and injustice that her family hs caused the Noughts and her and her sister Minerva. I hated jude (callums big brother), he is an insensetive little !*#£#&%$ and he is he one that causes the tragic death of someone very close to Callum... but im not going to say anymore. :):):):):) xxxx xxxx -Nadia
