Hope is the thing with feathers. That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops at all. - Emily Dickinson

This book is dedicated to Neil and Lizzy. As always. I love you. As always.
And I'd like to say a big thank-you to the following people, without whom the Noughts & Crosses series would've taken at least twice as long! Mum and Wendy. Sue Cook and Annie Eaton. Roma and Eddie. Sean and Gill. Lesley. Minerva. And all the other people who sent me emails and letters to wish me well and spur me on.
And last but not least, this book is also dedicated to my mother-in-law, Molly, who never showed me anything but great love and kindness.
