Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Double Cross, by Malorie Blackman

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 family feuds, 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....

Typical plot rewritten

The series continues with this amazing story. The continuation is thought provoking and touching with twists and turns of emotion. The story is addictive and hard to stop listening to. The story was exciting and full of suspense and anticipation. Throughout the book the now familiar characters are developed and we grow along with them. As the events unfold the excitement and also development of the story carries the listener along with it.

True to Life

Wow! What a listen! Easy listening with plenty of twisting and turning to maintain interest. Having read and listened to all in the Noughts and Crosses ‘series’ really looking forward to the next very soon.

A very different story

Following on from the first three books this feels more like Noughts and Cross the Next Generation rather than a continuation of the story. But, as any Stat Trek fan will tell you Picard is just as good, if not better than Kirk! This story follows mostly Toby and how he enters the world of racial stereotypes, expectations and living on the edge of society. Blackman makes excellent observations and comparisons between the world of young black men in inner city London and translates them sensitively into the world she has created.
Playing more like a gangster movie at times, it was clear that characters remain at the heart of all that she writes, no matter ethnicity or background and this really stretches the narrative and builds a richer world. Nothing like the previous 3 books but all the better for it and I cannot wait for book 5.

Wow

Well read by the narrators.

An amazing collection of books - topical, eye opening, thought provoking, emotional just to name a few.

I’ve read all the books in this collection and they are so well written the characters feel like family. A great ending - perfection!
