Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman
Sephy is a Cross - a member of the dark-skinned ruling class. Callum is a nought - a -colourless- member of the underclass who were once slaves to the Crosses. The two have been friends since early childhood. But that-s as far as it can go. Until the first steps are taken towards more social equality and a limited number of Noughts are allowed into Cross schools- Against a background of prejudice and distrust, intensely highlighted by violent terrorist activity by Noughts, a romance builds between Sephy and Callum - a romance that is to lead both of them into terrible danger.
-Reverse racial prejudice. Sounds really interesting and my sister already read it and loved it!
Question For Authors & Editors
This is something that I've been wondering about. After I write a review and I want to share it with the author but I've been asked to review it for a publishing house, does it reach both parties? Does the editor pass a review onto the author? Or if you email an author do they pass it onto their editor? In short, should a review be emailed to author and editor or only one? Which do authors and editors prefer? Fellow bloggers what do you do?
