    DESCRIPTION Kristina McBride
    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 lose someone she really 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.
