Book Trailer - Boys Don't Cry by Malorie Blackman

Last October I reviewed Boys Don't Cry by Malorie Blackman (you can read my review here) which is the story of 17 year old Dante who is literally left holding the baby when his ex-girlfriend can't cope with motherhood.  This was a fantastic story and one I really enjoyed so I wanted to remind you of it in case you haven't read it yet.  The paperback comes out in the UK next Thursday and it's well worth picking up a copy of!

Have a look at this video of Malorie Blackman talking about why she wrote the story here:

And make sure you check out the official trailer here:

If you like the sound of the story you can read the first chapter online here


  1. I loved those two videos. I have Boys Don't Cry on my shelf but I haven't got to it yet. I had no idea that Malorie was a UK author before listening to her talk on the video.

    I really need to get to this one soon, and Noughts and Crosses as I've heard such good things about it.

  2. The trailers are great aren't they! Malorie is a fantastic author & I would definitely recommend Noughts & Crosses. I've only read the first book in the series but it was one of the best books I read last year & I'll be getting started on the rest of the books soon :o)
