Book review by Millie C, Year 8


Book Title: Noughts and Crosses
Author:  Malorie Blackman
Publisher:  Corgi
What is the story about? A different time where there are two types of citizen - Noughts or Crosses.  Crosses are far superior.  Noughts and Crosses don't mix, but Callum and Sephy have been secret friends for years.  Will they every find a way to be together if Sephy is a Cross and Callum is nothing but a Nought?
Main characters:  Sephy, Callum, Jude, Meggie, Ryan, Minerva, Sephy's mum
Favourite characters:  Callum and Sephy
Did you like or dislike the story:

 Yes, I like the story very much because of the great description and the images that Malorie Blackman creates.  For example, 'His words dripped with ice'.

I also like the fact that it is written in the first person but it swaps from Callum to Sephy so that you can see the story in two different perspectives.
