  1. I LOVE YOUR BOOK THE THIEF IT IS FAB .I read your book the thief every day in scool and every one thins it is great .

  2. This was the first of your books that I read. I remember taking it out from the library as a child, around 10 years old. I was engrossed with it, but then forgot who the author was when the book was returned. The next few times I searched high and low for the book, desperate to read more like it. Eventually, I found it, along with A.N.T.I.D.O.T.E and Hacker. Since then, you were always my favourite author throughout my teenage years. I am now 22, and re-reading the Noughts and Crosses series for the first time in a few years, and I am struck by how your writing still manages to inspire me. Thank you.
