The Opposite of Love



Rose is the wild girl nobody really knows. Chase is haunted by his past. Both are self-proclaimed "disappointments," attracted to each other enough to let down their defenses. When Rose's strict, adoptive parents forbid the relationship, it only makes things more intense. But Chase can't hide from his own personal demons, and Rose has secrets of her own. After they're wrenched apart, a cryptic email arrives in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve, beginning a desperate pursuit and a look back over their tumultuous romance. Will they find each other before the night is over, or will they be torn apart forever?

"Scheerger's novel is unusual in that all the characters--parents included--have immense flaws, but they are treated with understanding, patience, and even forgiveness. . . .a thoughtful story of coming to grips with emotional pain." Booklist, September 15, 2014
"The novel is for teens looking for a realistic story. . . Fans of John Green's Paper Towns will enjoy it." School Library Journal, August 1, 2014
"The author, a licensed social worker who has worked with at-risk teens, creates a realistic and compelling story. . . .The climax is predictable but satisfying and sensitively handled." VOYA, October 1, 2014
