Noughts and Crosses #2: Knife Edge

Sephy is alone and pregnant, living in an apartheid state. She ought to be close to the top of a society where dark-skinned Crosses have the best of everything. But her baby daughter has a Nought father, Callum. A father whom Sephy’s own father executed. Now Sephy and her unborn baby are shunned by Noughts and Crosses alike. Meanwhile, eaten up with bitterness, Callum’s brother Jude blames Sephy for his loss. Now Jude’s life rests on a knife edge. Will Sephy be forced, once again, to take sides?
