Forced to lie to protect her sister . . .
From the New York Times Bestselling Author, Penny Reid
What’s the worst that could happen?
Mona is a smart girl and figured everything 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 fifteen, finish college at eighteen, and start your PhD program at nineteen, 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.

Another good book from Penny Reid. However I do hate trilogies because it I’m always disappointed the story isn’t as good in book 2. I’ll just have to buy it and see!
Really enjoyed the book. I couldn’t put it down.
4.5stars—fascinating and captivating
4.5 stars--MOTION is the first instalment in Penny Reid’s contemporary, new adult LAWS OF PHYSICS romance series focusing on nineteen-year old, physics genius Mona Tang, and twenty-three year od musician Abram. LAWS OF PHYSICS is the second trilogy in the author’s HYPOTHESIS series but can be read as a stand alone series without any difficulty. Abram was first introduced in the Elements of Chemistry series (a subset of the Hypothesis series)
Told from first person perspective (Mona Tang) MOTION follows nineteen year old, physics genius Mona Tang, as she agrees to impersonate her identical twin sister in the aftermath of a phone call revealing nothing good was about to take place. Mona’s twin sister Lisa is desperate for our heroine to return to Chicago and pretend to be her twin but Mona’s return to Chicago to finds our heroine face to face with musician Abram, a man whom Lisa had a brief but tumultuous past. Abram has been relegated as the full-time babysitter for Mona’s sister Lisa but Mona discovers that posing as her sister brings with it all kinds of probabilities including the possibility of falling in love. What ensues is the slow building relationship and friendship between Mona and Abram, and the potential fall-out as Mona’s time as Lisa is about to come to an end.
Mona is the socially-awkward twin; introverted and reclusive, Mona prefers books to boys, research to parties; clean-living to drunken one-night stands. Posing as her exuberant and troubled sister Lisa, Mona struggles to remain in character as she slowly begins to fall for her house-mate and guard. Abram’s previous meeting with Lisa was all kinds of wrong but this ‘new’ version of Lisa brings with it the potential for something more.
The relationship between Mona and Abram is based on a series of secrets and lies. Always in trouble, Lisa ‘forces’ Mona to impersonate her twin but in doing so pushes Mona into a situation that is quickly getting out of control. There is no sex, no romance just the palpable sexual attraction between our leading couple.
The back and forth banter between characters is fast, energetic and animated. Mona’s continuous inability to remain in character comes with the bumbling diatribes of an awkward genius-a sassy but sensitive heroine whose grasp on relationships is affected by her past. The premise is fascinating and captivating; the characters are cheeky and energetic. MOTION is a wonderful introduction to Penny Reid’s new LAWS OF PHYSICS trilogy. MOTION ends on a bit of a cliff-hanger-you have been warned.
