    Kind of, it's the second part of the trilogy; Noughts and Crosses, Knife Edge and Checkmate (Out at the end of the month I think).
    She also wrote a mini-book between Noughts and Crosses and Knife Edge called An Eye For An Eye for World Book Day, one of those books you can buy with a £1 book token. It's apparently pretty rare and hard to get hold of though, although Knife Edge makes more sense if you've read it apparently. Have only read N&C myself though!

    The Tulip Touch was written by Anne Fine.

    I read Noughts & Crosses a few weeks ago and thought it was brilliant. It left me really frustrated though.

    Noughts and Crosses is one of my favourite books ever ever ever! I read it on holiday a few years ago, and literally couldnt put it down. I stayed up til about 3 am reading it, and finished it all in one go. I have the little £1 book (An eye for an eye) and Knife Edge too, although knife edge was really disappointing. But I suppose that was bound to happen after you know who (dont want to ruin it!) dying. I didn't know that the third part was coming out. I'm going to order it now!

    i read noughts and crosses about two years ago.. It's still one of my favourite books!! Knife Edge was okay but not as brilliant as noughts and crosses. Hopefully the third book will be better.. the ending was kinda suprising though (about noughts and crosses).

    I did have a post about my thoughts on Checkmate, but the spoiler tags aren't working for me.

    I wrote a little about Checkmate here: http://palimpsest.org.uk/phpBB2/view...=1159&start=15

    Noughts and Crosses was fantastic, so sad at the end. I bought the sequel the other day - such a disappointment. I hope the third book is better, but maybe she should have stopped after the first.

    I agree with the whole disappointing sequel thing, Knife Edge sadly didnt live up to Noughts and Crosses. But when you overlook that, Noughts and Crosses is an extremely touching book which for me is a bit of an underrated classic! I havent read Checkmate (the final in the trilogy) but would definitely recommend the first book to anybody
