"Noughts and Crosses, by Malorie Blackman, is an extremely gripping novel, with unexpected twists throughout. Set in the Southern states of America, it presents some powerful imagery of life during its time, the hardship and how the characters dealt with racism in day-to-day life.
This novel is so well-written and the characters so vividly described that you can easily become attached to certain characters, and it makes you want to read on. This book lingers with you a long time after you have read it. A brilliant read."
(In a post here last December, Rebecca Scott also wrote about Noughts and Crosses for her Junior Cert book report.)
