Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman (Book Review)

Noughts & Crosses

Each of us has the power to give life meaning, to make out time and our bodies and our words into instruments of love and hope. Sephy is a Cross — a member of the dark-skinned ruling class. The two have been friends since early childhood. Until the first steps are taken towards more social equality and a limited number of Noughts are allowed into Cross schools… Against a background of prejudice and distrust, intensely highlighted by violent terrorist activity by Noughts, a romance builds between Sephy and Callum — a romance that is to lead both of them into terrible danger…. I cried at the end of Noughts and Crosses! Keep writing forever!

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. The book Noughts and Crosses is a dystopian fiction based in a 21st-century parallel universe.
