Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.
I know this one has been done a few times by others but it is a book that I am really eager for. This is the ARC cover- the real cover is subject to change but my understanding is this is pretty close. This cover alone inspires several emotions in me and I hope it is a good peak at what the book will actually hold.
Summary (Courtesy of goodreads.com):
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.
This is a rough area to read, write and explore but I have high hopes that this one will pull it off and if so, what an amazing way to debut! This one is set for release May 25, 2010.
