The first half of this book was kind of a roller coaster ride and I felt so sorry for Polarity and all the things she had to face. Things just seemed to keep getting worse and worse! Even once she was restored to her parents, her problems didn’t go away. The paced slowed down a lot in the second half of the book where a couple of different mysteries are being solved, but the author has a nice style of writing that made it very easy to rattle through the book
I liked Polarity a lot as a character and it was good to watch her grow as a person throughout the course of the book to the point where she was holding her own with the town sheriff and the school principle.
There is some romance in the book and while Polarity and Ethan are very sweet, I didn’t really get why she liked him so much, other than the fact he’s hot (which is obviously a valid reason!) I would have liked a bit more interaction between them, something to really show why they’re connecting. I did like the way they both tried to solve each other’s problems, though.
Polarity In Motion is definitely an issues book as opposed to an entertainment book and while I absolutely have to give snaps to the author for tackling the subjects she writes about (racism, drugs in schools, mental health, bullying, the care system) I would have preferred it if she’d stuck to just one or two issues and explored them in a bit more depth.
All in all though, I thought this was a pretty good book.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Many thanks to Red Adept Publishing and Netgalley.
