  • "Eighteen-year-old Sephy feels totally alone and terrified as she gazes down at her newborn daughter.

  • "Sephy is struggling to raise her mixed-race child in an apartheid society and to make her mark as a singer. But suddenly and dramatically her daughter, Callie, discovers the truth about her parentage- that her father was hanged for terrorism. Can mother and daughter heal the rift that has opened between them? Suggested level: secondary."
  • "Regenbogenkind: "Nach Himmel und Hölle" folgt nun der zweite Band der Trilogie über die herrschende Klasse der Alphas, die schwarz sind, und die Unterklasse der weissen Zeros. Das Alphamädchen Persephone Hadley, genannt Sephy, und Tochter des Vizepremiers bringt ihre Tochter Callie Rose zur Welt. Vater ist der im ersten Band als Terrorist der Befreiungsfront gehängte Callum und erste Liebe von Sephy. Jonathan, Bruder von Callum, will Sephy töten, da er sie für schuldig am Tode seines Bruders hält. Doch wird Jonathan selbst angeschuldigt, ein Alpha Mädchen getötet zu haben. Ausgerechnet Sephy liefert ihm ein falsches Alibi, damit der Mutter der beiden Söhne das Herz nicht bricht, gerät damit aber nur noch mehr zwischen die Fronten. Der rasant erzählte und packende Plot über Rassenhass und Diskriminierung wird kapitelweise anhand der verschiedenen Sichtweisen der Hauptpersonen erzählt und ermöglicht so den Perspektivenwechsel einfach zu verstehen und dennoch ein differenziertes Bild über die Hauptfiguren, deren Denken und Handeln abzugeben. Ab 13 Jahren, ****, Elisabeth Tschudi-Moser."

  • "This thought-provoking and often provocative look at racism is a sequel to the award-winning Noughts & Crosses. For fourteen years, Sephy, a singer, struggles to raise her mixed-race child in an apartheid society, telling Callie Rose very little about her father, and trying to make her mark in the music business where she also has to deal with prejudice. But suddenly and dramatically, Callie discovers the truth about her parentage -- that her father, Callum, was hanged for terrorism! Can mother and daughter heal the rift that now opens between them? And can Callie ignore the pain of the past as she takes her own steps towards her future? This is a riveting and page-turning novel for ages twelve and up that will confirm Malorie Blackman's status as one of today's top authors for young readers. -- Product Description."@en
