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.

About the Author:

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.
