Compared to the first book, Noughts and Crosses, this one was just BORING! Not only that, but what’s up with sudden poetic, lyrical snippets that have been added? It’s airy-fairy nonsense. Book 2 in the dystopian series in which a 360 degree turnaround focuses light from a different angle on racism, with the setting an alternative history in which Crosses, black people, have always been the dominant civilising force, with white people as former slaves only emancipated fifty years before the timeline of the story.

Noughts & Crosses is a series by English author Malorie Blackman of young adult novels, including three novellas, set in a fictional dystopia. The series describes an alternative history in which African people had gained a technological and organisational advantage over the European people, rather than the other way around, with Africans having made Europeans their slaves. The series takes place in an alternative 21st-century Britain.

I bought this for my 11-year-old, who loved the first one. She enjoyed it so much, that she read it in 48 hours.

It's a disturbing world where blacks, the Crosses, are the over-privileged, and whites, the Noughts, are treated as unequal.

Sephy is a Nought who is also the mother of Callie Rose. Her husband, Callum, was a Cross but was murdered for taking part in the Liberation Militia. Then there is Jude, Callum's brother, the one person who is blaming Sephy for the death of his brother. However, Callum's mother isn't holding a grudge against Sephy.

The one thing on Jude's mind is to get revenge for his brother. And his first step is to get rid of Sephy.

Along the way both Jude and Sephy fall in love with other people: one to get access to money, while the other is just in contempt. But also along the way, both of their lives become even more complex, and even more damaged.

One will be helped, one will be betrayed, and only one will be overwhelmed by their current distress and do the unthinkable.

Dark, emotional, and extremely alarming, KNIFE EDGE gets us an inside look at a world separated by color and where hatred and violence flourishes. A great follow-up to NOUGHTS & CROSSES (re-released in paperback as BLACK & WHITE), Malorie Blackman continues to entice us with even more drama.

Thoughtful look at discrimination from a different perspective. Buying the "used" book provided great value. Read this book if you get the chance.

My order came super quickly, was exactly what I needed and was in fabulous condition. Would definitely use this seller again! Two thumbs waaaay up :)
This book was amazing. I think made me cry even more than the first one, which had the hanging scene. I still havent read the third one, but I ordered it and cant wait. Best book series ever.
