By Malorie Blackman ⭐️⭐️⭐️ In a world where white people are oppressed and black people are the oppressors a newborn mixed baby is going to have a tough time fitting in. Sephy will do anything to protect her baby, even move in with the mother of her baby’s father on the wrong side of the tracks. She struggles with her emotions and tries to figure out how she feels about her baby’s deceased father, Callum, without holding anything against her child.
After truly enjoy the previous book in the Naughts & Crosses series I had high hopes for this book, but it fell short. Sephy became insufferable. She truly had so many places she could turn, but decided to be pigheaded about it. Jude, Callum’s brother, definitely had a more interesting plotline as he tries to deal with his inbred racism despite being drawn to a white woman. The book dragged and wasn’t nearly as good as the first book.

Throwback to when Ralph managed to lay down on a stack of books on the floor. Unedited. 100% real. No books were harmed whatsoever. This is why you buy hardcovers. We're planning to do this again soon. 😁
