The Opposite of Amber

By Gillian Philip

Published Jan 2010

They found the fifth girl after the snow melted…‘ Ruby and Jinn are sisters and the best of friends, the closest of allies. Jinn, vivacious and beautiful, has done everything she can to look after Ruby after their parents’ death. Then no-good Nathan Baird comes into Jinn’s life and she changes, neglecting Ruby. What is happening to her? And then Jinn goes missing – just like all those other girls… Gillian Philip’s previous novel, Crossing the Line, was longlisted for the Carnegie Award. The Financial Times said: ‘Crossing the Line is an uncompromising exploration of the ruthless Darwinian world of teenagers. It’s tough, rough-textured and assured, cynical where it needs to be, and it demands respect.’
