"The Noughts & Crosses series are still my favourite books of all time and showed me just how amazing story-telling could be" - Stormzy
"I grew up reading her. It was one of the few books about black people, so I felt seen." - Candice Carty-Williams
"The most original book I've ever read" - Benjamin Zephaniah
"Malorie Blackman is absolutely amazing ... [Noughts & Crosses] really spoke to me, especially as a woman of dual heritage." - Zawe Ashton

Just this once. Just this once and no more, I promise.
Please let me get away with it just this once . . .

Tobey wants a better life - for him and for Callie Rose. He wants nothing to do with the violent gangs that rule the world he lives in. But when he's offered the chance to earn some extra money, how much could it hurt to just this once say 'yes'?

Callie Rose knows all about the danger of saying 'yes'. She knows about terrible mistakes, and violence and revenge, and the fierce divide between Noughts and Crosses.

And knowing so much about the past makes her afraid for her future.

Because sometimes, one little bad decision can change everything . . .

Voted as one of the UK's best-loved books, Malorie Blackman's Noughts & Crosses is a seminal piece of YA fiction; a true modern classic.
