Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman (Book Review)
Noughts and Crosses is set to become a TV series – here’s what we know so far
In class we discussed racism, segregation and civil rights with your book! The originality of the plot is breathtaking and the characters superbly drawn. When you read Noughts and Crosses, you move through the novel with a burning anger towards a warped unjust society but bursting pride for the courage of both Callum and Sep. Callum reveals to Sephy that he unsuccessfully tried to catch up with her before she left for Chivers?
He offers Sephy a singing part, but the noughts are prejudiced against her because she is a cross. Callum is then led to the gallows. There is something in this series that is a lot like the European Union in terms of its power called Pangaean Economic Community. You're all behaving like animals.

That would be awesome. Leave a review Cancel reply Review Name Save my name, and burns with injustice at the world she sees around her, email. He keeps the secret from his girlfriend Callie Rose. The members agree to split up and keep a low profile for six aeries and not meet up until Callum's birthday. But she's lonely.
The series describes an alternative history in which African people had gained a technological and organisational advantage over the European people , rather than the other way around, with Africans having made Europeans their slaves. The series takes place in an alternative 21st-century Britain. At the time of the series, slavery had been abolished for some time, but segregation, similar to the Jim Crow Laws, continues to operate to keep the crosses dark-skinned people in control of the noughts lighter-skinned people. An international organisation, the Pangaean Economic Community, exists. Seeming to be similar to the United Nations in scope but similar to the European Union in powers, it is playing a role in forcing change by directives and boycotts. When Callum a Nought and some of his friends get accepted into an all-Cross school, one of them gets injured and when Sephy says a very heart-breaking word about Noughts which is 'blankers' , Callum feels like she betrayed him. Sephy also gets beaten up because she sat with the Noughts on a table.
