    i have got to learn to read the entire dust jacket in the futurethis is what i saw Across North America, flocks of birds hurl themselves into airplanes, causing at least a dozen to crash Thousands of people die Fearing terrorism, the United States government grounds all flights, and millions of travelers are stranded Among them are Reese and her debate team partner and longtime crush David, who are in Arizona when the disaster occurs On their drive home to San Francisco, along a stretchi have got to learn to read the entire dust jacket in the futurethis is what i saw Across North America, flocks of birds hurl themselves into airplanes, causing at least a dozen to crash Thousands of people die Fearing terrorism, the United States government grounds all flights, and millions of travelers are stranded Among them are Reese and her debate team partner and longtime crush David, who are in Arizona when the disaster occurs On their drive home to San Francisco, along a stretch of empty highway in the middle of the Nevada night, a bird flies into their headlights The car flips over.that is as far as i got i thought evil birds it s about time the world must know but it s not about evil birds at all the initial action sequences are the result of birds, sure, but it quickly turns into atraditional sci fi, YA x files book which is fine, but i am just not the audience for it but you know a book about the evil of birds, and i am first in line.i liked a lot of the character development, and i appreciated the sweet LGB first love stuff, and the sweet hetero first love stuff, and the sad sweet first heartbreak stuff but view spoiler aliens hide spoiler are just not my thing and that first violent scene view spoiler when their debate teacher gets shot at the gas station hide spoiler that whole scene just seemed implausible and rushed, just to get them away from adult protection view spoiler because if someone has just shot someone, i do not understand how locking the car door is any sort of protection against them does that somehow interfere with their ability to shoot through the windows does it mess up their aim no hide spoiler that is the equivalent of pulling the covers up over your head to avoid monsters you should be dead.so this is really a high three star i think it is a fun book, and is a very sensitive book, and for those of you who like a little paranormal in your romance, this one is probably a good match, and i hope you enjoy it but warning cliffhanger ending come to my blog

    I m torn between whether to give this one or two stars The very beginning was pretty good, so I m going to leave it at 2 But mehhh After the opening action view spoiler i.e after the car accident hide spoiler , all of the momentum was completely lost, there wasn t a clear direction that we were moving in That was really hard to read through I almost put the book down again and again but such a good premise had been set up in the first 50 pages that I wanted to know what happened w I m torn between whether to give this one or two stars The very beginning was pretty good, so I m going to leave it at 2 But mehhh After the opening action view spoiler i.e after the car accident hide spoiler , all of the momentum was completely lost, there wasn t a clear direction that we were moving in That was really hard to read through I almost put the book down again and again but such a good premise had been set up in the first 50 pages that I wanted to know what happened with that When we finally got back to it, it felt thrown together and confusing view spoiler i.e the government just randomly comes and kidnaps them because they need to conducttests It was just so weak hide spoiler Obviously, momentum and plot are very important to me as a reader If you re just interested in a LGBTQ character study, this could be worth your time But if you re interested in the book for the actual stuff written on the dust cover, then you might be frustrated when all of the action disappears through the middle of the book so that we can explore our main character s feelings.I think there were some good ideas here and also some interesting themes, but in my opinion it was poorly executed and needed to betied together Because of this, this was REALLY hard to read all the way through, and in the end the plot just became so weak and illogical that the climax wasn t satisfying.P.S Sorry, onecomplaint why didn t David have ANY personality at all Every character had a personality except for him Go ahead tell me one adjective that describes his personality That made it really hard to see what interest she had in him or to feel any tension between the two of them as they interact in the book

    My old review for this book can be found on my blog, the lowercase gimmick.It can be hard to admit that a book I really liked and that really impacted me emotionally is flawed But there are big parts of this book that don t work mainly, the fact that Reese is a very passive protagonist, and the sci fi elements don t fit well with the contemporary elements.That said, it s still very emotional to see aspects of myself represented in this way, and this is a well written book with a lot to like My old review for this book can be found on my blog, the lowercase gimmick.It can be hard to admit that a book I really liked and that really impacted me emotionally is flawed But there are big parts of this book that don t work mainly, the fact that Reese is a very passive protagonist, and the sci fi elements don t fit well with the contemporary elements.That said, it s still very emotional to see aspects of myself represented in this way, and this is a well written book with a lot to like about it I recommend it highly

    the scifi thriller aspect was intense but i have to say it s refreshing read a bi girl book where there is both a guy LI and a girl LI they re both given development and the MC isn t framed as a slut or whatever for experiencing expressing attraction to both ppl.
