i've just finished Boys Don't Cry and I LOVE it!!! it's great! My brother has read it as well. My favorite character in the book is Adam.
Because I loved that so much i'm starting to read another one of your books! called Knife Edge that looks really good too. I like depressing and stories that actually relate to problems in peoples life, and things sad like in boys don't cry. I think it's good that authors like you write things that are sad and lifelike instead of just ' happily ever after.' maybe i might read Pig Heart Boy too?"

Malorie Blackman: Hi Grace, Thanks for your message. I would hope my books aren't just depressing but have funny things in too. I hope you enjoy Knife Edge although Knife Edge is actually the second book in the Noughts and Crosses series. Have you read Noughts and Crosses first?
