Hiya fellow readers, hope you are doing well. Today’s review is for Penny Reid’s latest, Motion, which is part 1 in the Laws of Physics Trilogy.
Sadly, this is a cliff hanger but I still loved it and can definitely overlook the cliffhanger part. Happy Reading.

What’s the worst that could happen?
Mona is a smart girl and had everything figured out a long time ago. She had to. She didn’t have a choice. When your parents are uber-celebrities and you graduate from high school at thirteen, finish college at seventeen, and start your PhD program at eighteen, you don’t have time for distractions outside of your foci. Even fun is scheduled.
Which is why Abram, her brother’s best friend, is such an irritant.
Abram is a talented guy, a supremely gifted musician, and has absolutely nothing figured out, nor does he seem to care. He does what he feels, when he feels, and—in Mona’s opinion—he makes her feel entirely too much.

Motion is set over a week’s time, Mona our lead comes back to her parents Chicago house and is to be babysat by her brother’s friend Abram. They have a kind of past and yet are strangers in every sense. Events set in motion over this week are pretty interesting, hilarious at times and some sweet one’s too.
Mona is a smart, funny character. Her inner conversations, the ones she has with herself, inside her head, all the time, are truly entertaining. They also give a glimpse of the turmoil going inside the mind of a person who is primarily career focused and very practical. It was great to see her experience every day emotions like chilling out, getting attracted to someone completely opposite her personality.
Abram is the best, he’s cheese the heroine, Mona’s chalk personality. He’s a laid back guy and was a perfect distraction for Mona. His hidden depths which we saw when he was being all intimate, open and honest with Mona was pretty swoony and sweet.
Since, Mona’s harboring a pretty crucial secret she ends up staking her heart much against her practical brain’s chagrin. That’s where Part 1 ends.
I liked Mona’s character a lot, her practical nature and regular girl next door emotions made for an entertaining contrast to read. Even with a sure promise of the story progressing towards a happy ending, I look forward to seeing how it shapes up.
