Sephy and Callum have grown up the bestest friends. But Sephy is a cross, and the daughter of a famous politition Kamal Hadley. When they were younger, Sephy's mother Jasmine, hired Maggie McGregor who is Callum's mother. However she was fired when she couldn't prvide an aliby for Jasmine when Kamal confronts her about an affair. This book is about the struggles as Sephy and Callum try to keep their friendship strong and pure despite all their obstacles and differences.

I absolutely love Sephy AND Callum's charector. Sephy, a ditermined girl in love with Callum and he with her. Callum is a very sure and also ditermined boy. He and Sephy match each other perfectly and i fell in lvoe with them as friends and a couple.

SPOILER !!!!!!!!!!!!:

The ending was so sad i bawled my heart out, crying and crying.
Poor Callum. It was such a sad ending to an amazing book.
I reccomend it to teenagers/young adults!!x

“So why did you want to kiss me?"
"We're friends aren't we?" Callum shrugged.
I relaxed into a smile. "Of course we are."
"And if you can't kiss your friends who can you kiss?" Callum smiled.”

Just Deena Ive read dat whole series and I LUVED EM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ITS ONE OF THE BEST SERIES IVE EVER READ!!
Have u read all of em yet??

Heather-Jane Yes i loved them all so much and have NEVER found a series which is quite as brilliant as that series. I loved Sephy and her daughter Callie too and enjoyed the third book, how it was written from callie growing up to a teenager at the end. Have you ever found a series similar or as good? I read hunger games which was good but not as goood xx

Just Deena yeah ive read da hunger games and i luved it! but ure right its not as good, i cried when i read noughts and crosses
have u read da poison study series? its reallly good!!!!!!!!!!!! but which series do u think is betta vampire academy or noughts and crosses? :)

Heather-Jane hm.... i really love vampire academy soooo much but noughts and crosses is one of my all-time fave reads so i have to go with that, sorry V.A!! i havn't read poison study, i will have a look at them as well thanks x

Just Deena wow! i thought u would pick VA ova NAC, and no worriez, I luved the last book of the series (double cross) and the ending was really goood! it was happy, so yeah :) x

Heather-Jane I do love VA but noughts and crosses was so different and i really loved it so much! who is your perfect cast for V.A? You go first then i'll put mine xx

Just Deena Rose: Odette Yustman
Dimitri: Ben Barnes <3 <3
Adrian: Chace Crawford <3 <3
Lissa: Brittany Snow/Taylor Swift
Christian: Nicholas Hoult

Heather-Jane My cast:
Dimitri Ben Barnes!!!
Rose Sophia Bush
Lissa Brittany Snow
Christian Gaspard Ullie <3 <3 <3
Adrian Chase Crawford or maybe ian soemrhalder lol

Just Deena i wanted sophia bush as rose at first but den i saw odette yustman and i think that shes perfect!!!!!!!!

Heather-Jane i juist looked at Odette as well she does look good as well but sophia is better:L

Just Deena ahaha i beg to differ, hey have u read the fallen series??

Heather-Jane yes i like them as well, cant wait for passion, they keep on getting better and better!

Just Deena hard!! but to me fallen was soo much betta than torment, torment was kind of borin 2 me! but i seriously love the mortal instruments series!!!! and i soo want alex pettyfer 2 play as jace!!

Heather-Jane same , alex would be the perfect jace! what do you think about lily collins as clary? she looks a little too mature and grown up coz they describe clary as young looking ? x

Just Deena i sooo dnt want lily collins as clary, i swear when i first read that they officially got her to play as clary, i started swearin! man like srsly i dnt like her :( who would u hve chosen?

Heather-Jane I agree, she looks nothing like Clary except the hair maybe. I dont know who id cast though, maybe molly quinn coz she looks young looking , you? x

Just Deena exaactly she looks nufin like clary and ure right only her hair does, and i really dnt know who i would choose to cast as clary, but i'll research lol:)r u from australia?? :)

Just Deena oh just found out ure from the uk!! wow!!

Heather-Jane uk is boring! no nice weather and nothing to do or see! haha, ts not too bad really:)
