Product description

We have selected Crossfire as our Teen book of the Month for September: another powerhouse of a book by the inimitable Malorie Blackman – a former Children’s Laureate who knows how to keep the pages turning at a frantic pace. This hugely readable and relevant story will hook in readers of all ages, from teens to adults, especially fans of The Hate U Give.

Noughts and Crosses broke the mould when it first appeared in 2001, depicting a world of inverted racism where black Crosses dominated white Noughts. Now Crossfire takes the story into the present day, where race and class supposedly no longer divide people, and Britain has its first ever Nought Prime Minister. Except that he has just been framed for murder, and two young people are about to be caught in the crossfire… Brilliantly taking the original stark divisions of Noughts and Crosses into today’s world of subtler inequalities, Crossfire is another tense and addictive book that will attract a wide readership, addressing real-life issues that matter to young people right now.

*Please note this book contains mature content and language more suitable for older readers.

Also available in class packs of six or 30 copies.
