Noughts and Crosses - Nick Hern Edition $16.99

Dominic Cooke from Malorie Blackman

Published by Nick Hern Books

8 Male 8 Female

An electrifying, bitter-sweet love story with echoes of Romeo and Juliet, set in a society divided by racial bigotry and a world rocked by terrorism

Sephy (a Cross) is the daughter of the Deputy Prime Minister

Callum is the son of a Nought agitator

United by a shared sense of injustice as children, and separated by intolerance as they grow up, their desire to be together begins to eclipse all family loyalty sparking a political crisis of unimaginable proportions

Adapted from Malorie Blackman's best-selling novel


"I wanted to turn society as we know it on its head, with new names for the major divisions, i.e. Noughts (the underclass) and Crosses (the majority, ruling society)" ~ Malorie Blackman

'Dominic Cooke's excellent adaptation ... a dark, politically unsentimentalised story about teenage love transcending the barriers in a deeply divided society ... heart-rending' ~ Independent
