Reese can’t remember anything from the time between the accident and the day she woke up almost a month later. She only knows one thing: She’s different now.

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.

Reese and her debate team partner and longtime crush David are in Arizona when it happens. Everyone knows the world will never be the same. On their drive home to San Francisco, along a stretch of empty highway at night in the middle of Nevada, a bird flies into their headlights. The car flips over. When they wake up in a military hospital, the doctor won’t tell them what happened, where they are—or how they’ve been miraculously healed.

Things become even stranger when Reese returns home. San Francisco feels like a different place with police enforcing curfew, hazmat teams collecting dead birds, and a strange presence that seems to be following her. When Reese unexpectedly collides with the beautiful Amber Gray, her search for the truth is forced in an entirely new direction—and threatens to expose a vast global conspiracy that the government has worked for decades to keep secret.

I'm halfway through this book, and I'm just so bored. It's not really what I thought it was going to be. The beginning started off really exciting, with a lot of craziness happening. But then all of a sudden we are almost at a standstill. It has turned into a teenage romance, and that's not what I'm wanting to read right now. It's just not my type of book unless I'm in the mood for it, which I very rarely am.  This is gonna have to be a DNF for me.

I'm sure there is going to be more excitement to the story.  At least, I'd think there would have to be to explain the beginning portion.  But the pacing is so off that I'm just not interested.
