CHECKMATE by Malorie Blackman

And… it’s the third in the awesome, amazing, epic, brilliant, I- could- go- on- forever Noughts and Crosses series by Malorie Blackman… and it’s STILL amazing; if someone asked me which one was the worst out of these three, I actually wouldn’t be able to give you an answer… I’d go over the books, like, 10 times and I wouldn’t be able to find a best/ worst in them… and I’m babbling, now…

So the last book left off where Callie Rose stopped breathing when Sephy held her too tight. And, thankfully, Malorie Blackman didn’t kill off Rose. Actually, the book starts in Callie’s POV. It tells you what Callie thinks, and basically, she thinks Sephy wishes her dead so Callum could live. And that’s a hard thing to believe… oh, my mom wishes I were dead if it meant my dead dad could live. Oh, what a brilliant upbringing Callie Rose had.

In this book, I grew to really dislike Meggie… because she seems far too possessive of Rose, which you learn when you read the part where Meggie threatens to go to court and win custody of Rose when Sephy wants to move out… amongst other things. She becomes, I think, my least favorite character… to the point where I think Jude is better.

Either I’m really weird, or Meggie really is acting horrible.

In the book there are two main plot bits… Sephy vs Callie Rose, and Jude vs Jasmine. You learn that Callie is part of the Liberation Militia, and she becomes quite close to, ‘Uncle Jude’. However, she also grows to hate Sephy. And… well… it’s all connected. Can’t spoil it more than I already have…

Read. Read. Read. How many more times do I need to say it before people get the idea about this series?? Here, I’ll say it a few more times. Read. Read. Read. And if you’ve already read them, read them again!!

I think you get the point now.

Age… 12/13.
