Gillian Philip is an exciting new talent with a real ear for contemporary life, as showcased in her first novel for Bloomsbury Crossing the Line. Gillian lives in Elgin in the north of Scotland.
Shortlisted for the Scottish Book Award 2010. Incredibly readable, this is a sympathetic and hard-hitting novel that looks squarely at how teenager Nick Geddes copes with the various complications of his life. To say things are not going well for Nick would be an understatement! His mother is absorbed in her media job, his father struggles with alcoholism, his grandmother is slipping into dementia and his sister has always been ‘different’. But, when his sister’s boyfriend is killed in a school stabbing, things begin to spiral out of control. Nick tells his story in a clear and convincing voice capturing the incredible highs of adolescent love in the midst of trouble.
