Malorie Blackman - Noughts and Crosses


I like Malorie Blackman so I sought out this young adult classic. It's bleak but then most YA novels are (hooray for Louise Rennison and her silliness). The politics of the dystopian world are cleverly imagined and the complexity of the characters' situation is clear. But it just didn't seem very well written or plotted, so it wasn't as gripping or convincing as I'd hoped.
