Knife Edge Book Description

This thought-provoking and often provocative look at racism is a sequel to the award-winning Noughts & Crosses.
For fourteen years, Sephy, a singer, struggles to raise her mixed-race child in an apartheid society, telling Callie Rose very little about her father, and trying to make her mark in the music business where she also has to deal with prejudice. But suddenly and dramatically, Callie discovers the truth about her parentage -- that her father, Callum, was hanged for terrorism! Can mother and daughter heal the rift that now opens between them? And can Callie ignore the pain of the past as she takes her own steps towards her future? This is a riveting and page-turning novel for ages twelve and up that will confirm Malorie Blackman's status as one of today's top authors for young readers.

"From the Hardcover edition.
Persephone Hadley is six months pregnant with a mixed-race baby. In their society this fact alone will threaten the child's life every day. To make matters worse, the baby's father, Callum, is dead. He was hanged for terrorism months ago, but his presence still torments Sephy. And she's not alone. Callum's brother, Jude, blames Sephy for the death, and thirsts for revenge...in the form of her life. Obviously, Sephy is not fond of Jude, but when his actions take him to the brink of disaster, his life poised on a knife edge, can she stand by and do nothing? Will she be forced -- once again -- to take sides in a chilling racial drama?
