Hi! I hope this is allowed! My friend wrote a book and it is coming out this month. I wanted to post a link to her website because she has this awesome little trailer about the book! I encourage everyone to read it, I know I will!

Here is a quick synopsis of The Tension of Opposites:

"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."
