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.
"It is really a cautionary tale about choice and the danger of nursing anger. This makes it a humane story that will help the cause of tolerance ... It is written with passion, does not condescend and will appeal to teenagers who want to understand grown-up emotions" The Sunday Times 20040217 "Relentless in its pace ... Devastatingly powerful" Guardian 20040217 "The story never flags, and characters develop ... I repeatedly looked up from the pages, thinking "What would I do?" and this is the redeeming strength of Knife Edge - its moral heft" Daily Telegraph 20040316 "Malorie Blackman is writing a disturbing trilogy that should be read because it is important. And a gripping yarn as well" School Librarian 20040316 "Noughts & Crosses was brilliant and this sequel is as good, if not better ... The reader is forced to confront issues of racism in our society in a unique way ... but this is incidental as the tale is so compelling" Carousel 20040513
