The Tension Of Opposites


The Tension Of Opposites

Kristina McBride
2010

It’s been two years since Noelle disappeared. Two years since her bike was discovered, sprawled on a sidewalk. Two years of silence, of worry, of fear.

For those two long years, her best friend Tessa has waited, living her own life in a state of suspended animation. Because how can she allow herself to enjoy a normal high school life if Noelle can’t? How dare she have other friends, go to dances, date boys, without knowing what happened to the girl she thought she would share everything with?

And then one day, someone calls Noelle’s house. She’s alive.

A haunting psychological thriller taken straight from the headlines, The Tension of Opposites is a striking debut that explores the emotional aftermath of a kidnapping on the victim, and on the people she left behind.

-Hayz's Review-
Is that what things would be like? I've always been interested in criminal justice and things like kidnappings maybe that why I wanted to read this book. Whatever the reason it was a good book. I had no idea what things would be like at all and this book made me realize what some of the after effects are.
