A frightened girl running barefoot on a knife edge, that's how 18-year-old Sephy feels as she gazes down at her new-born daughter, Callie Rose. Whilst Sephy is a Cross, the baby's father, Callum, was a nought, giving Callie Rose dual heritage in a society where the ruling Crosses treat the pale-skinned noughts (blankers) as second-class citizens.
What kind of world will her daughter grow up into? One which is more equal? Or one where discrimination still has the power to destroy lives? Sephy can only hope that the tomorrows will be better than the yesterdays. But fifteen years later, Callie Rose's actions are to plunge both of them into the heart of danger, forcing Sephy, once again, to take sides.

I would really reccomend this audio book, but i would advise that first, u get the first book (noughts and crosses) so that u can wot understand is goin on in this book.
Not only was this a pleasure to read, it was an equal pleasure to hear. It's powerfully different and really opens your mind to ideas of race and inequality, I love it, love it.
