Waiting on Wednesday: The Tension of Opposites

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. I couldn’t pick just one this week. There are two books being released on the same day, I have pre-ordered both, and I’m looking forward to them pretty equally.

My second pick is The Tension of Opposites, a debut novel by Kristina McBride. It will be released on May 25.

When Tessa’s best friend Noelle disappears right before the start of eighth grade, Tessa’s life changes completely–she shies away from her other friends and stops eating in the cafeteria. Now, two years later, Noelle has escaped her captivity and is coming home, in one piece but not exactly intact, and definitely different. Tessa’s life is about to change again as she tries to revive the best-friendship the two girls had shared before Noelle–now Elle–was kidnapped; puts up a futile resistance to the charming new guy at school; pursues her passion for photography while trying to build the bravado to show her photos to the public; and tries to balance her desire to protect and shelter Elle with the necessity to live her own life and put herself first.–From Amazon

Here’s the trailer for The Tension of Opposites:

  • I love that you had two this week! I have a hard time narrowing down my choices, too…sometimes it simply comes down to which ones have cover art!! 🙂

  • I was trying to choose by closest release date, but then these two pre-orders had the same pub day. Didn’t seem fair to discriminate 😉
