Polarity in Motion
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Polarity in Motion

"Attention, please. Attention. This is Mrs. Sanchez speaking. Polarity Weeks, report to the office. Polarity weeks, report to the office immediately."

This was a YA mystery story, about a girl who had a naked photo of herself put onto the internet.

I felt quite sorry for Polarity, because none of what happened was her fault, and it was also really embarrassing for her. It must also have been quite scary for her the way she was taken away from her family by social services.

The storyline in this was about the mystery of who had taken the photo of Polarity, how they had taken it, and who had then posted it to the internet. There was a little bit of romance, but not a lot, and I wasn’t expecting the racism discussions that went on.

The ending was pretty good, and I liked that we got answers to all of the questions!

6.5 out of 10
