Book: Laws of Physics: Motion
Series: Hypothesis trilogies #2
Author: Penny Reid
Release date: 12 February 2019
Plot: Mona is a genius. And a good person. She’s straightforward and low on the drama scale. She’s also a twin. Her twin sister Lisa couldn’t be more different. Dubbed ‘a wild child’ by the press, Lisa is in a sticky situation and begs Mona to cover for her until she’s able to extricate herself from the rather large hole she’s dug for herself. Not being a master of subterfuge, Mona tries to think it out logically. Tell as few lies as possible, barely speak and keep herself to herself. Elementary.
She doesn’t bargain on Abram however. He perplexes her completely. He’s intelligent yet a bit of a slacker, her opposite in many ways. Yet he sees her, and seems to appreciate who she is and how she thinks. Which can only make a bad situation dire…
Why you should read it: Penny Reid releases a book, I must read it. Simple as that. I loved the Elements of Chemistry series, so the next set of trilogies has me super excited. Mona is adorable and her family dynamics had me eager for more info. What has her sister done and why have they grown apart? What’s Abram going to say when he realises what’s been going??? So.Many.Questions. And then the wolves came.
What you may not like: Not much in my opinion – it was well written, it includes appearances of some much-loved characters from Knitting in the City series. Yes this ends on a cliffhanger – but I knew this going in. You may prefer to wait for all 3 books to release. Not a bad idea if you hate waiting months for resolution to your characters’ problems!
Rating: 5/5 for a very promising start to what is set to be a story full of misunderstandings and angst. Knowing Penny Reid though, there’s bound to be lots of hilarity along the way!
