Double Cross (Noughts & Crosses, #4) by Malorie Blackman

Why did you do that Malorie? Callum crosd meets with Sephy in the Hadleys’ rose garden. The problem I think I had, which colored my reading of Double Cross, is that the third book in what was supposed to be a trilogy ended with threads woven in and it was a nice, natural close to a satisfying story.

I would definitely still recommend it though. Only then did Meggie realise her mistake. I can’t say I didn’t enjoy it but sometimes authors need to know to stop whilst you’re ahead.

Double Cross by Malorie Blackman book review

It didn’t have the same focus on noughts and crosses and the fight for equality as the douvle did. A second theatre adaptation of the first book titled Noughts and Crosses is due to premiere at Derby Theatre in Februaryand then tour the UK.

Sephy was also annoying; you would think that blackmqn wouldn’t be so quick to judge and separate Callie and Tobias after her own experiences with Callie.

Not as exciting as the original trilogy but it’s still a great fast-paced action book. Not that her writing is inaccessible to adults, just for me it was harder to go back to the point where I left off in this continuing story. I have plenty of book husbands Oh so many to name! As for Tobey, he’s a colourless kid, a “Blanker”, who’s made it into the decent school and is determined to get out and up into a better life.

It fizzes with strong emotion and grips with its authenticity, a highly-skilled piece of writing by a writer with all the right instincts The combination packs a punch yet keeps a tender heart. Malorie Blackman is a genius.
