Part of the Noughts And Crosses series
Sephy is a Cross, one of the privileged in a society where the ruling Crosses treat the pale-skinned noughts as inferiors.
But her baby daughter has a nought father - Callum. Eaten up with bitterness, Callum's brother Jude, blames Sephy for the terrible losses his family has suffered.
Now Jude's life rests on a knife edge. Will Sephy be forced, once again, to take sides?
