Tension of Opposites Trailer

Kristina McBride's debut novel, The Tension of Opposites, releases in just four short weeks!

I'm sure you've already been enticed to read it by the book description and the haunting book cover, but now you can experience a beautiful book trailer for Kristina's novel that is sure to hook you. You'll also have to opportunity to win Tension of Opposites swag if you spread the word about this novel and it's amazing trailer.

Release Date: May 25, 2010
Publisher: Egmont USA
Pages: 288
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.

*Description taken from Amazon.
