I know. You have questions about this segment, right? Like what is this Opposites Attract thing? What crazy scheme is Julie Cross up to now? Why does she always talk so much and overuse the words—so, okay, basically, just—oh…and ellipses, what’s up with all the ellipses?!

So…Opposites Attract, is where I take two reviews of Tempest that received identical ratings but have very opposite opinions and show them here (without naming reviews or linking to the review or source. I’m just using things Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Blog reviews). I will display the contrasting opinions by highlighting them in PINK.
Notes from me are in brackets with the text they refer to highlighted in YELLOW and my notes are not about defending myself…okay, maybe a little, but mostly, I feel like it’s a chance to see many sides. We could all be a little more open-minded, me included. AND also, I actually talked to one of these reviewers and she was excited to have some of the time travel that confused her, explained. I’m going to try my best to do this.
