The Opposite of Nothing
by Shari Slade
Publication date: March 31st 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Tayber turns hooking up into an art form–no drama, no commitment, no lies, and nobody gets hurt. Nobody but Callie, that is. When she sees an opportunity to explore his sexier side using a fake online profile, she grabs it. Now her uninhibited alter-ego ‘Sasha’ is steaming up the screen, and Callie is breaking all of Tayber’s rules.
As Callie and Tayber get closer, online and off, she knows she has to confess. And risk losing him forever.
**For mature readers, contains strong language and adult situations.**
FIVE FUN FACTS
1.- I first got the idea for The Opposite of Nothing when the Manti Te’o scandal broke last year.
I wanted to write a “catfish” story with a happy ending.
2.- According to extremely unreliable internet sources, the name Tayber means “misfortune.” This is appropriate.
3.- Callie is short for Callista, which comes from the Greek for “most beautiful.” No wonder she’s uncomfortable with it.
4.- I purposefully omitted the name of the song Tayber sings along with in the car after he and Callie go to the movies. I wanted it to be whatever song the reader wished a crush would sing to them. For me…he’s singing Ana Ng by They Might Be Giants.
5.- When Callie wallows in her guilty feelings, she plays a punk rock cover of the Fiona Apple song Criminal. As far as I know, there is no professionally recorded punk cover of that song. I so wish there was.
