Made you give up and give in? He offers Sephy a singing part, but the noughts are prejudiced against her because she is a cross. Great book but personally I thought it was pretty irrelevant to the series. On the whole, one of the best of the series, a definite must-read even for those who didn’t enjoy the rest! That fails, and Jude shoots her in the shoulder. I think that if I’d carried on reading the books in a closer concession I pro 3. She suffers from a horrible disease which has symptoms of bitchiness, moodiness and erratic behavior.

Tobey takes her hand and places it over his erection. Did I love it as much as the others? Sephy feels trapped and rejects an offer of marriage from her boyfriend, Sonny.

This one was completely out of character with the rest and came off sort of weak. It barely mentioned it in some cases. I would definitely still recommend it though.

He keeps the secret from his girlfriend. Did I like him?

But in the early stages of ‘Double Cross’ I began to have a small feeling of doubt, could he have survived, somehow I couldn’t completely put it past him. She begins to neglect Callie Rose.

Years later, Sephy returns home from Chivers. Part of the Noughts and Crosses Series. Cara spends a lot of time with Jude. However, maoorie decides to end their relationship and become merely ‘friends’. Sephy feels an unusual tummy bug come on.

And Callie still has to deal from the fact that she isn’t one-sided, a Nought or a Cross, she is somewhere in the middle. Here, the story was extended beyond its natural lifespan and it felt somewhat forced. Callum decides to let Sephy flee from the other kidnappers while they are out. Meanwhile, Callie Rose is paying more attention to feeling hurt when Tobey takes a sniff of her perfume and tells her she smells like biscuits.

I think that if I’d carried on reading crooss books in a closer concession I probably would have enjoyed it a little bit more, but the writing and the storyline is always so easy to jump back into that you soon pick up the connection with the characters that you had from the first couple of books.

Callum’s brother, Jude, blames Sephy for the terrible losses his family has suffered douuble is determined to destroy Sephy’s maalorie by any means necessary. Email hlackman Address never made public. I’ll definitely be giving this book a miss whenever I decide to give the series a re-read. Both are powerful gangs that frequently injure and kill each other’s members as well as suspected informants.

I was mostly confused as to why I needed to read this as the ending for Checkmate left everything on good terms however, I now regret thinkin crkss and I am very glad that I have read it.

Double Cross by Malorie Blackman book review – geekandbooknerd

This is an original, intelligent, perceptive and though-provoking series of books — and whilst squarely aimed at the Young Adult market, it clearly transcends the restrictive boundaries of that genre. I was also disappointed that Sephy was in this novel so infrequently as I enjoyed her character much more as she aged.


Jasmine sets off the bomb to prevent Jude from injuring anyone else. She enters the house and discovers that Callum had left her a letter telling her to meet him at the family’s private beach. Everyone else thinks that it was a tragic accident, despite all of her previous suicide attempts. Kamal had been the intended target of the bomb, but he only loses power, after Jasmine had sent a letter to the press about his rampant corruption. Jasmine, Sephy’s mother, does what she can to bring Callie and Sephy closer together but develops breast cancer and struggles with her life.

A second theatre adaptation of the first book titled Noughts and Crosses is due to premiere at Derby Theatre in Februaryand then tour the UK.

Double Cross by Malorie Blackman book review

Mar 28, Emma rated it really liked it Shelves: This stage version is adapted by Sabrina Mahfouz for Pilot Theatre. This book finalises the Noughts and Crosses series. While he shows her the way back to town, Sephy badly injures her foot. Tobey wants a better life – for him and his girlfriend Callie Rose. There are two races in the book: Tobey is offered the chance to earn some ready money just making a few ‘deliveries’ after he is introduced by a friend, Dan, who works for McAuley.

Although I had sometimes found Callie a little irritating the last book, in this book she was must more likable, and Toby was an oddly endearing character, considering his actions.

Rebecca is shocked, but Tobey reassures her that he does not work for him any longer. It didn’t have the same focus on noughts and crosses and the fight for equality as the others did.
