Summary

A frightened girl running barefoot on a knife edge, that's how 18-year-old Sephy feels as she gazes down at her new-born daughter, Callie Rose. Whilst Sephy is a Cross, the baby's father, Callum, was a nought, giving Callie Rose dual heritage in a society where the ruling Crosses treat the pale-skinned noughts (blankers) as second-class citizens. What kind of world will her daughter grow up into? One which is more equal? Or one where discrimination still has the power to destroy lives? Sephy can only hope that the tomorrows will be better than the yesterdays. But fifteen years later, Callie Rose's actions are to plunge both of them into the heart of danger, forcing Sephy, once again, to take sides.

KE

It was cool but sometimes the acting was terrible and drony. The story is good but if not got others in series, do not get this one.

It has to be listened to

If the shoe was on the other foot .... is it colour or human nature that makes us act as we do?

Tan cruel...

No he podido parar hasta el final en busca de un momento de paz, siempre con el corazón en vilo.
La interpretación y la lectura fantásticas, con mucho sentimiento.
