Space, the second book in the all-new Laws of Physics Trilogy from Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author Penny Reid, is available now!
Still an unrepentant slacker.
What’s the worst that could happen?
Mona’s meticulously planned allotment of relaxation is thrown into chaos by the unscheduled appearance of her older brother’s band of friends, including the one person she’d hoped to never face again. Abram still makes her feel entirely too much, which is one of the reasons she disappeared after their one week together. But now, trapped on a mountain of snow and things unspoken, Mona will have to find a way to coexist with Abram, chaos and all.
Laws of Physics is the second trilogy in the Hypothesis series; Laws of Physics parts 1 (MOTION) & 2 (SPACE) end with a cliffhanger.

The title of book two, Space, lends itself nicely to a variety of hypotheses when it comes to where Penny Reid plans to take her hero and heroine in the second part of their story, and while I’ll admit, I didn’t quite anticipate the non-linear path Mona and Abram took to be around each other again after the implosion of their would-be chemistry at the end of Motion, my theory that it would not be easy for either one of them to move forward or accept what happened the short time they spent together was proven correct, even if it wasn’t entirely resolved.
The idea of space, when it comes to both Mona and Abram, is an interesting one…for the longest time, Mona has thrived without being close to anyone, needed that distance, not only due to her issues with touching but also because even if she can articulate every concept in the world of science, when it comes to talking about herself, especially anything that’s personal, she shuts down or takes too scientific of an approach, leaving those around her more confused than enlightened.
I don’t know if I’ve ever been more frustrated with two characters for their lack of communication than I was when I was reading part two of Mona and Abram’s story. Don’t get me wrong, I understand why Abram is beyond furious with Mona, and I can’t blame Abram for both loving and hating her, but what I do take issue with is the fact that he reacted without allowing Mona to speak…without realizing how difficult it is for her to put her feelings out there…without taking two seconds to see things from her point of view, especially since he feels so strongly and deeply for her even though they had only spent 6 days together.
The fact that Mona feels like she has to earn everything she gets stems from her family’s lack of putting her first and making her feel unloved and isolated. Her entire family seems incredibly selfish and don’t even get me started on Leo – he seriously has a warped sense of things and he needs someone to straighten his ass out! And I gladly offer my services because man did I want to nut punch him for his ridiculous comments and reasoning.
This is definitely a unique love story because even though book two is about two years from the end of book one, the total time that Abram and Mona have spent together still doesn’t add up to a complete week, not in sense that they were with each other for the entire time, and I’m sure that, that fact plays into the rather tense and cold interactions these two have throughout the course of the story.
With Time being the end of Mona and Abram’s story, I, once again, have several theories with where their journey will take them, not only because of how things ended in Space, but because, it’s something that both of them are going to need in order to work out all of the feelings they’ve kept stored away, trusting one another to not put any further space between them and hoping that there would come a time where the universe would align and they could be together. And I most certainly hope that’s the case!
