Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Tense! The constant push and pull of friendship, pain, love, and jealousy is beautifully drawn. A definite must read."—Jay Asher, New York Times best-selling author of Thirteen Reasons Why

"[A] well-paced story with . . . emotional punches that really connect."—Publishers Weekly

"Told without explicit detail, the headline drama about sexual predators will pull teens in."—Booklist

"There aren't many explorations of what happens after such a crime . . . and readers will . . . sympathize with both Tess and Noelle."—BCCB

Two years ago Noelle disappeared. Two long years of no leads, no word, no body.

 

Since the abduction, Tessa, her best friend, has lived in a state of suspended animation. She has some friends, but keeps them distant. Some interests, but she won’t allow herself to become passionate about them. And guys? She can’t get close—she knows what it is like to really lose someone she cared for.

 

And then, one day, the telephone rings. Noelle is alive.

 

And maybe, just maybe, Tess can start to live again, too.

 

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

“Tense! The constant push and pull of friendship, pain, love, and jealousy is beautifully drawn. A definite must read.”

– Jay Asher
