What can I say? These are my version of the trashy Harlequin romance.

Book #32 -- Kristina McBride, The Tension of Opposites, 279 pages.

Two years ago, when they were both fourteen, Tessa's best friend Noelle disappeared. Since then, Tessa has lived her life on hold, eschewing any normal teenage experience which feels to her like a betrayal of Noelle's memory. Then comes the phone call. Noelle has been found. But the girl calling herself Elle is nothing like the Noelle Tessa once knew. Can Tessa help her best friend without losing any more pieces of herself, or is Elle's risky behaviour going to drag them both down?

This is an incredible book about how people react to and recover from traumatic events, and the effect that process has on the people closest to them.
