Polarity in Motion
by Brenda Vicars
Genre: Young Adult
Release Date: December 2, 2014
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.

Overall I give this book 5 Stars!
Oh Wow!!! I completely LOVED this book. Polarity just wants a normal life. She wants to be accepted. Her mother has a borderline personality disorder. One day a classmate was looking at a nude photo of her. Her life is now over. She was taken from her home and now she has to put up with the kids being mean to her. Then the one person who she thought she could count on starts to be mean to her as well. Will things ever calm down for her?
I thought this book was really well written and very interesting. It shows how kids can be mean to each other and my heart broke for Polarity. I just wanted to hug her and tell her it would all be okay. I think the author did a fantastic job and I can't wait to read more from her. Great Job!
Highly Recommend this book.
She entered education because she felt called to teach, but her students taught her the biggest lesson: the playing field is not even for all kids. Through her work, she became increasingly compelled to bring their unheard voices to the page. The heartbeat of her fiction emanates from the courage and resiliency of her students.
