Noughts and Crosses BBC version hidden by book fairies to celebrate the release of the TV adaptation

The Book Fairies team up for BBC Noughts + Crosses Release

Malorie Blackman’s epic novel has been adapted for BBC One and The Book Fairies celebrated in the only way they know how…

Now unless you’ve been living under a rock, if you’re in the UK you will have heard of the new BBC adaptation of Noughts + Crosses. What better way to mark the occasion than by hiding one hundred copies of Malorie Blackman’s novel around the UK?

About the book:

Sephy is a Cross: dark-skinned and beautiful, she lives a life of privilege and power. But she’s lonely, and burns with injustice at the world she sees around her.

Callum is a nought: pale-skinned and poor, he’s considered to be less than nothing – a blanker, there to serve Crosses – but he dreams of a better life.

They’ve been friends since they were children, and they both know that’s as far as it can ever go. Noughts and Crosses are fated to be bitter enemies – love is out of the question.

Then – in spite of a world that is fiercely against them – these star-crossed lovers choose each other.

But this is love story that will lead both of them into terrible danger . . . and which will have shocking repercussions for generations to come.

Voted as one of the UK’s best-loved books, Malorie Blackman’s Noughts & Crosses is a seminal piece of YA fiction; a true modern classic.
