  • "Award-winning author Malorie Blackman tackles the issues of racism and prejudice in a world set in an alternate historical reality. Previous titles by the author include Pig-Heart Boy, Hacker, Dangerous Reality and Operation Gadgetman."@en
  • "In a world where the pale-skinned Naughts are discriminated against by the politically and socially powerful dark-skinned Crosses, teenagers Callum--a Naught--and Sephy--a Cross--test whether their love is strong enough to survive their society's racism."
  • "Sephy is a Cross -- a member of the dark-skinned ruling class. Callum is a Naught -- a "colorless" member of the underclass who were once slaves to the Crosses. The two have been friends since early childhood, but that's as far as it can go. In their world, Naughts and Crosses simply don't mix. Callum is a naught-a second-class citizen in a world run by the ruling Crosses. Sephy is a Cross, daughter of the man slated to become prime minister. In their world, white naughts and black Crosses simply don't mix. As those closest to them try to force them apart, Callum and Sephy are still determined to be together. Then Callum overhears his father and brother's terrorist plot to bomb a shopping mall. Callum knows Sephy is there, and he barely guides her out before the explosion. Now Sephy may be alive, but Callum has been caught on camera-and Sephy's father will stop at nothing to see him hanged, no matter what it means for his daughter's heart. In this tightly plotted thriller, UK sensation Malorie Blackman challenges our most basic-and least obvious-racial assumptions. Naughts and Crosses is a gripping, stimulating, and totally absorbing novel for readers of any age."

  • "Une histoire d'amour qui explore le problème de la différence et du racisme : dans un monde où tous ceux qui sont noirs sont riches et puissants, et où tous les Blancs sont pauvres et opprimés, Callum et Sephy s'aiment.

Suggested level: intermediate, secondary."

  • ""Cette nouvelle et magnifique édition collector regroupe l'intégrale du texte culte de Malorie Blackman. Pour les amoureux de la série 'Entre chiens et loups.' Imaginez un monde. Un monde où tout est blanc ou noir. Où ce qui est noir est riche, puissant et dominant. Où ce qui est blanc est pauvre, opprimé et méprisé. Un monde où les communautés s'affrontent à coups de lois racistes et de bombes. C'est un monde où Callum et Sephy n'ont pas le droit de s'aimer. Car elle est noire et fille de ministre. Et lui blanc et fils d'un rebelle clandestin..."--"
