Waterstones Says

Malorie Blackman’s Noughts and Crosses series was one of the foundational texts of the Young Adult literature boom and now, over a decade after Double Cross, Sephy and Callum return in a blistering new novel that finds our protagonists all grown up but the dystopian world they inhabit still casting a shadow on their relationship. A mature, intelligent addition to a seminal sequence.

Exclusive Edition with red sprayed edges

Crossfire is the long-awaited new novel in legendary author Malorie Blackman's ground-breaking Noughts & Crosses series.

Thirty-four years have passed since Sephy Hadley - a Cross - first met Callum McGregor - a nought. Their love was forbidden, powerful - and deadly.

Life is seemingly very different now for noughts and Crosses - including for Sephy and Callum's families. But old wounds from the past are hard to heal, and when you're playing a game as dangerous as they are, it won't be long before someone gets caught in the crossfire.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Fast-paced drama will resonate with the interent-era teens... Rich in moral and social issues, this fifth book in the series is devastating about racial attitudes and tantalisingly inconclusive.' - The Sunday Times

'Blackman's absorbing but alarming novel deals with themes of racism and prejudice... Unforgettable.' - Independent

'Packs some powerful political punches...But Blackman never compromises the story, which is dramatic, moving and brave.' - The Guardian

Praise for Noughts & Crosses:

'The Noughts & Crosses series are still my favourite books of all time and showed me just how amazing story-telling could be.' - Stormzy

'The most original book I've ever read.' - Benjamin Zephaniah

'Blackman "gets" people... she "gets" humanity as a whole, too.' - The Guardian

'Powerful.' - The Sunday Times
