Product Description

A knock-out tale that’ll send your heart straight to A&E. Sephy’s racist society is black and white. But love is a deadly shade of grey… Sephy is black. Callum is white. They’ve been friends since they were tiny. But now that they’re growing up, hanging out is no longer smart. Callum is a Nought: lowest of the low in a society run by the black Crosses. Sephy is a privileged Cross: daughter of a powerful politician. They can’t love each other – but they do. That’s how the time-bomb starts to tick. And when it blows, it’ll shatter your heart…

  • Malorie Blackman’s shocking tale of race and prejudice
  • Winner of the Red House Award and Sheffield Book Award
  • “A beautiful love story… harrowing and moral” – Bookseller
  • Think Romeo and Juliet in a brutal world divided by race

This book contains mature content more suitable for older readers.
