Now a major TV series on the BBC The Noughts & Crosses series are still my favourite books of all time and showed me just how amazing story-telling could be STORMZY Malories Noughts & Crosses series is the first time I saw myself in a book . . . they were pacey, exciting, rich. What Malorie Blackman has always done so brilliantly is put the minority front and centre, both in society and politics. CANDICE CARTY-WILLIAMS The most original book Ive ever read BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH “Malorie Blackman is absolutely amazing … [Noughts & Crosses] really spoke to me, especially as a woman of dual heritage.” ZAWE ASHTON _____ Stop it! Youre all behaving like animals! Worse than animals – like blankers! Sephy is a Cross: she lives a life of privilege and power. But shes lonely, and burns with injustice at the world she sees around her. Callum is a nought: hes considered to be less than nothing – a blanker, there to serve Crosses – but he dreams of a better life. Theyve been friends since they were children, and they both know thats as far as it can ever go. Noughts and Crosses are fated to be bitter enemies – love is out of the question. Then – in spite of a world that is fiercely against them – these star-crossed lovers choose each other. But this is love story that will lead both of them into terrible danger . . . and which will have shocking repercussions for generations to come. Voted as one of the UKs best-loved books, Malorie Blackmans Noughts & Crosses is a seminal piece of YA fiction; a true modern classic.
