Forced to lie to protect her sister . . .From the New York Times Bestselling Author, Penny Reid
One week.Home alone.Girl genius.Unrepentant slacker.Big lie.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.
Laws of Physics is the second trilogy in the Hypothesis series; Laws of Physics parts 1 (MOTION) & 2 (SPACE) end with a cliffhanger.

I devoured this book, it was so good. I had no trouble connecting with Mona, I loved her character. She was witty, brilliant and also socially awkward. I am also smitten with Abrams, oh boy he was great. I loved that he called her his muse (~swoon~), and knowing he is a musician that’s a significant indicator on how he felt about Mona! The writing of this book flow so well, I was hanging on every word. I love how the book slowly revealed Mona’s character and the reason behind her personality and lifestyle.

This book also talked about the consent debate, and briefly touched on why many do not report sexual assaults. And the assumption of males cannot be the victim of sexual assault. These are important issues that align with current social problems. I thought it was nicely written and help bring more awareness.

I can’t say I’m a fan of a cliffhanger, even though Penny had warned us ahead of time, but I still had a mini freak out when this book ended. Mona and Abrama have great chemistry together, and I cannot wait to read the next book of the series!
