omg i totally agree!!!
i bought Noughts And Crosses in the airport before i went to Corfu and had finished it by the time we came home, and thats with all the activities we did on holiday too!
So after that i really wanted knife edge so my mum bought me it.. and Malorie Blackman HAD to put the first chapter of Checkmate in the back didnt she :x I didnt want to know if Callie Rose survived or not until the next book!
But my dad came home with Checkmate and i went crazy! read it within a few days!!!
Really great story, but not for younger children... rape, murder and other awful things that wouldn't be suitable for their minds.

Malorie Blackmen is truly an amazing author. Not many books can do it but this one made me cry. Ive read the others and they too are fantastic... Well worth a read.

I loved noughts and crosses, i cried my eyes out at it, i havn't read the other two books yet because im not sure if i'll like them as much, i quite like the first book being the only book because i can in a way make up my own ending for Callie and Sephy.

Right now im reading the stuff of nightmares by Malorie Blackman, So far its really good :lol:

The noughts and crosses film is coming out soon. They've already cast it as my friend sent me the link of a pic of seffy.

But i doubt it will be less than a 15 (good for me though as i'm turning 15 in december :lol: )

I had no idea it was being turned into a movie. If you get any info about it id love to hear it.

Also, there is a new book in this series its called double cross i think. Has anybody read it?

Theres a magazine which you can subscribe to from waterstones. Thats where my friend foundout about the new book and film. It was supposed to be a trilogy but MB probably thought it was so good she should make another.
