"An inspired take on Romeo and Juliet, Blackman's absorbing but alarming novel deals with themes of racism and prejudice without ever coming across as didactic. Unforgettable" ( Independent)
"Stimulating and emotionally satisfying" ( Financial Times)
"A gritty read for older children . . . At times this is a beautiful love story; at other times it is a harrowing and moral tale. Narrating believably through the voices of two teenagers, Malorie Blackman has written an incredible novel that is as heart-rending as it is provocative. I had to read it all in one sitting, and I challenge any reader not to do the same" ( Bookseller)
"This epic tome packs some powerful political punches to which readers will undoubtedly respond. But Blackman never compromises the story, which is dramatic, moving and brave" ( Guardian)
"Inter-racial teenage love has never been more painful" (Amanda Craig The Times)
