Product Description:

Callum is a nought - a second-class citizen in a world run by the ruling Crosses. He is also one of the first nought youngsters to be given the chance of a decent education by studying at a school for Crosses. Sephy is a Cross - can Callum and Sephy possibly find a way to be together?

From the Inside Flap:

Two young people are forced to make a stand in this thought-provoking look at racism and prejudice in an alternate society.

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. In their world, Noughts and Crosses simply don?t mix. Against a background of prejudice and distrust, intensely highlighted by violent terrorist activity, a romance builds between Sephy and Callum -- a romance that is to lead both of them into terrible danger. Can they possibly find a way to be together?

In this gripping, stimulating and totally absorbing novel, black and white are right and wrong.
