Noughts & Crosses (novel series) – Wikipedia

I finished this book this morning and lets just say I can understand why it was so controversial…. This book started differently. I was like… hang on! What happened… are you not going to reveal what happened at the end of Knife Edge? But they did… through a series of flashbacks which I so so enjoyed. Sephy has told Callie a lie about how her dad died to save her feelings and when she meets Uncle Jude he slowly starts to groom her so he can use her as a weapon for his revenge on Sephy.


Callie became cold and hateful and turned against her mother. Her grandfather, Kamal Hadley….

I was expecting it but it still made me gasp! As Sephy and Callie are having a heart to heart in the cellar l, Sephy shows Callie the true letter that Callum wrote to her and oh my god… I actually cried when reading it. And when Sephy flashes back to the time when they made love… Oh my god I welled up again.

Sephy and Callum… well they are and always be true loves. She loves them but Callum is her true love. I always think what if… What If Callum lived? What If they raised Callie together? What would have happened to their relationship? Would Jude have been hell bent on revenge? Would Sephy and Callum have stayed together? I live these stories. These books would be perfect for a book club because there are endless issues you can talk about.

Also I really want to write some sort of essay on these books. Book in the series: A total book nerd and a massive geek just as the name suggests.
