Against a background of prejudice and distrust, intensely highlighted by violent terrorist activity by Noughts unable to accept the injustices any longer, a romance builds between Sephy and Callum; a romance that is to lead both of them into terrible danger.

"An author who has worked hard not to be identified too closely with any particular genre, she has built a complex and challenging novel around an alternative version of apartheid." (The Scotsman)
This was my daughter`s favorite book when she was 13. I enjoyed listening to it - the actors are talented and the story moves quickly, if occasionally predictably. Some of the themes are more suited for older teens, but my kids were fine with them. I recommend this for kids 12-15.
This was a good book that was excellently transposed to an audio book by using 2 readers. Highly recommended for teenagers and adults alike.
Never before has a book made such a powerful impression on me. This book is literally without fault and should be made compulsary reading for absolutely everyone. The ending is so moving that I cried out load and no book has ever done that to me before. Seriously it is that good, I defy anyone not to be moved by this awesome masterpiece.
