“People I went to see for jobs would show shock at the disparity between my face and the name on my CV. They’d say: “I expected you to be a lot more foreign.” It’s that moment, as a teenager, when you first realise the difference between all that you are and how the world sees you.” (Guardian)

Noughts and Crosses is a captivating drama of love, revolution and what it means to grow up in a divided world.
