Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman

Book Description

"Noughts and Crosses" is about a black girl called Sephy and a white boy called Callum and their friendship in a world that's divided by the colour of your skin - and how their feelings for each other grow as they grow older and grow up. As Malorie Blackman herself says: 'I wanted to turn society as we know it on its head, with new names for the major divisions, ie Noughts (the underclass) and Crosses (the majority, ruling society). I wanted to see this new world through the eyes of the main two characters, Callum (a nought) and Sephy (a Cross).'

Author Biography - Malorie Blackman

Malorie Blackman can lay claim to being Britain's leading black children's author. She won a 2003 Smarties Award for Cloud Busting and the 2004 Fantastic Fiction Award for Noughts and Crosses, which is the first in a series of four books about racism set in a world where the traditional positions of black and white are reversed. Dominic Cooke's work as a director stretches from Arabian Nights for the Young Vic through the premiere of Plasticine at the Royal Court to this season's As You Like It - seen in the West End in March 2006. He takes up the high-profile job of Artistic Director of the Royal Court Theatre, London, in January 2007.
