Review quote

It is really a cautionary tale about choice and the danger of nursing anger. * The Sunday Times * Relentless in its pace . . . Devastatingly powerful * Guradian * I repeatedly looked up from the pages, thinking "What would I do?" * Daily Telegraph * Malorie Blackman is writing a disturbing trilogy that should be read because it is important. * School Librarian * Noughts & Crosses was brilliant and this sequel is as good, if not better . . . The reader is forced to confront issues of racism in our society in a unique way . . . * Carousel *
