Product Description

Fifteen-year-old Polarity Weeks just wants to live a normal life, but with a mother diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, that’s rarely easy. Her life gets exponentially more disastrous when her sixth-period history classmates start ogling a nude picture of her on the Internet. Polarity would never have struck such a shameless pose, but the photo is definitely of her, and she’s at a complete loss to explain its existence.

Child Protective Services yanks her from her home, suspecting her parents. The kids at school mock her, assuming she took it herself. And Ethan, the boy she was really starting to like, backpedals and joins the taunting chorus. Surrounded by disbelief and derision on all sides, Polarity desperately seeks the truth among her friends. Only then does she learn that everyone has dark secrets, and no one’s life is anywhere near normal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great debut young adult novel! Great suspense novel. 16 August 2016
By Lichen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was recommended to me as being an especially good representation of the genre. I almost never read young adult novels - they just rarely interest me, and so few are well-done. So it was with a little reluctance that I began Polarity in Motion.

About ten pages in, I was hooked. The opening was expertly-written, immediately grabbing the reader as it should. As I read, it occurred to me that I would like to use it as an example to beginner novelists I am working with as a mentor and/or editor, as I try to instill in them the terrible importance of a great opening to a novel. At that point, I double-checked to see how many books the author had under her belt; I was surprised to find out that this was her first novel.

The next thought I had was that she had an excellent editor. Not only was the text clean (I think I found two typos and one grammar error - this is present in any novel, no matter how thoroughly edited), but the book was structurally extremely sound. This wasn't an easy task for a beginning novelist: the book is at its core a mystery, and with that type of book plot structure must be near-perfect: in order to keep the reader wondering and the story flying along, a writer has to do some painstakingly careful plotting. Foreshadowing must be continuous but not overwhelming; tension must be maintained to a high degree; most importantly, all the strings of plot must come together neatly at the end. The reader must be surprised by the ending, and yet satisfied and not surprised at all by what they learn. This book, for the most part, accomplished that.

Polarity in Motion is about a young girl caught up in a sexting scandal at a high school - one in which she is victimized. We follow her as she is removed from her school and home, and - during the impending formal investigation - becomes a temporary ward of the state. I really liked this section of the book, because I think it deftly illustrated the confusion, helplessness and anger of a child in such a situation. The main plot revolves around the discovery of who set her up, where the photo originated, and how it came to be a tool of bullying as it was disseminated among the peers in Polarity's social and academic world.

This book is entertaining and suspenseful and would entertain anyone from 12 to 80. It contains a lot of teen angst, crazy teachers, annoying parents, bullies, cute boys and a little romance. It really is a bang-up debut young adult novel, and is far above most others out there in terms of both quality of writing and of story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth reading. 6 August 2015
By Kris Neifeld - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
First I have to mention I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. When I began the process to download the book, I discovered I had already bought it -- oops. It does mean that this book has appealed to me for a while so I moved it to the top of my booklist. Honestly, after reading it, the only reason I can think that I didn't read it sooner is that it was mixed among other books and fell too far down the queue. And the best part of my oops is that I moved it to the top and read it.

I read a lot and tend to be hard on books, getting very frustrated and upset when the plot or characters are not realistic. This time any frustration or upset were completely in sympathy for the characters and the situations; I would find myself tensing and getting angry in response to the plot. I had trouble stopping when I absolutely had to do something else and rushing to get back. I REALLY loved this book, I wasn't ready for it to end, and the only thing delaying me from finding out if this author has any other novels is writing this review. I highly recommend this book. It is well written, very realistic about teenagers as well as school, the characters are fully developed, and the message it's getting across is superbly conveyed without beating the reader over the head. Definitely worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it, love it, loved it! A must read for both adults and young teens! 31 March 2015
By Amelia - Published on Amazon.com

My 15 year old son was hooked from the get-go! I used this book as an educational opportunity to speak to him about several things... love,. communication between family, school personnel & peers, choices, and to raise awareness in several fronts--the importance of personal integrity, truth, honesty, respect, communication and standing up for what is right, while being open to the idea that being right doesn't mean others are "wrong" or deserving of mistreatment. The masterfully set story line, the colorful characters and the positive and negative experiences amongst them allowed ME the opportunity to dive deeper into my own life's experiences and share them with my son and learn a few things about his maturity level, as well! We also discussed race and how historical background and society's perception can impact your life but how one's choices and their effect are mostly on one's court.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for All Ages 3 June 2015
By Paula Berryman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I LOVED this book. It is awesome to have a book written from an educator and a student's perspective. The book addressed so many levels of bullying that I was hooked. Having two teens I think social media is a blessing and a curse in so many ways. I couldn't put this book down until it was finished.

This book is perfect for adults & teens. If you liked: Speak you will love this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book 6 December 2014
By daminz2000 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved this book. It straddles the line between a subject a teenager might be interested in and there is enough adult characterization and failure to ensure that adults will keep turning the pages! Looking forward to more books by the author. It is so authentic of how teens have difficulty figuring things out and finding their. How cruel they can be to each other because of their own short comings, fears, and hurts. I don't think you'll be disappointed and buy it now before the price goes up.
