Has anyone read Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman? I'm reading it at the moment as my eldest is studying it at school. So far I'm really enjoying it, but I have a feeling its not going to be a HEA. Should I be scared?
I have never heard of this book...
Why does that sound like a super English name for tic-tac-toe?
I didnt realise Tic Tac Toe was what you called noughts and crosses!
Here's a synopsis. However, it's not really a romance at all and I have a feeling it's going to end badly. 'Sephy is a Cross – a member of the dark-skinned ruling class. Callum is a nought – a ‘colourless’ member of the underclass who were once slaves to the Crosses. The two have been friends since early childhood. But that’s as far as it can go. Until the first steps are taken towards more social equality and a limited number of Noughts are allowed into Cross schools… Against a background of prejudice and distrust, intensely highlighted by violent terrorist activity by Noughts, a romance builds between Sephy and Callum – a romance that is to lead both of them into terrible danger…'
HAHAHA! I was totally being jokey! I didn't really think it was the same game!
I suppose your name makes a bit more sense, though...
According to amazon.com this is a trilogy so things may get worse before they can get better...
I know you were joking Jodes.
Oh bugger about it getting worse, as I'm having heart fail as it is.
I can't put it down though.
