exchange for an honest review When I requested this book, I thought it sounded cute and the idea of a book about studying the flight patterns of crows intrigued me for some reason I ended up liking this book so much than I expected and what a pleasant surprise This book was exciting, romantic, clever and so much It is told from the point of view of an extremely intelligent girl named Gin who loves to create computer programs for her every day life from what to wear, to how to spend her time, everything is meticulously planned from the programs she has created to eliminate the normal stress of decision making Without the little problems, Gin is able to focus all her efforts on school and getting into Harvard where she can become the computer programmer she has always dreamed of becoming So with her senior year planned out perfectly to get her into her dream college and with everything going as planned, leave it to her best friend and a class that should have been her easiest yet to throw her a curve ball that could change all her plans and programs Life has a funny way of giving us all the unpredictable, and poor Gin wasn t ready for what life had in store for her Be it good or bad, she has to choose whether to throw her programs aside and go with her heart Or forever wonder what could have been if she had only taken that chance.The most important part of this book are its fantastic characters I loved Gin and her brainy outlook on life I also really appreciated the fact that even though Gin was constantly focused on school and work and her computer programs, she still had a beautiful best friend who kept Gin active in school and getting a social life even against all computer program odds And my gosh did I love Felix These characters were all so well fleshed out I felt like I was a student in school watching the drama unfold before my very eyes they were so real to me The technical terms that usually tend to bog down stories with so much computer science in them such as this book weren t as overwhelming as I thought they would be I am by no means a computer genius, hell I feel accomplished when I can figure out how to get HTML formatting to work, much less creating entire computer programs to run my life So when things start to get too technical I can usually feel my eyes beginning to glaze over and my mind starts to wander to different realms and I find myself rehashing what I had for lunch and wondering whats for dinner its a long and constant struggle this love for food that I have I digress I m happy to say that there were no wandering food thoughts in this book though because there was a happy balance of technical talk with a lot of simple explanations that helped the reader know without having to be in the know I felt like at the end of this book I could jump right into computer hacking 101 and do pretty good Just kidding I m still struggling with the italics in the first part of this review But we ll just pretend like I learned something because I sure felt like I did I couldn t put this book down from the sweet love story, the ever interesting crows, the family drama and so much there was never a slow or dull moment I was so wrapped up in the characters and all that was going on it was easy to find that I d read most of the book in one sitting I definitely think that this will be a book that can be enjoyed by all types of readers in all types of genres It was different from everything I ve been reading lately but it was still such a fun and refreshing read flag 14 likesLike see review Dec 10, 2018 Manon rated it

me I didn t really like Gin, nor did I relate with her The only characters I somehow empathized with was her friends, Lucas and Hannah, and then again, not really I really didn t like Felix, and was very disappointed with the ending.I was mostly bored throughout the book I didn t really care about most of what was happening It felt slow and a bit messy I guess that must have been because I couldn t find it in me to like Felix Everything would have been fine had I liked him.Since I didn t like him, I really wasn t rooting for their relationship and I found it a bit rushed and unnatural And I found myself not being interesting in the computer parts all that much eitherI guess this really wasn t for me but I m sure others would love it flag 2 likesLike see review Nov 18, 2018 Daria

sounded so accurate I can see how much work the author put in this book I m sure people that are interested in modeling or work in this domain will enjoy the book.Now, let get to the ugly part This book didn t catch my attention at all The whole mistery with Felix and the crows didn t interest me.At some point somewhere around page 70 I felt like I was forcing myself to read this book just to give you my review So I took a break from it But I just didn t want to come back to it because it had nothing to pull me back into it I ended up forcing myself to finish it, to give my review before the release day.I found it easy to relate to Gin, with all her insecurities I liked how she created models to organise her life, but later it became a little bit unrealistic The magic disappeared page by page and I just ended up not really caring for what happened to her But I really loved the friendship between Gin and Hannah.The romance was just unrealistic I didn t really understand why Gin and Felix liked each other I mean, yes, Felix was good looking, liked modeling, had pretty lips and at first the author presented him as perfect I can get why a nerdy girl like Gin would like him But why did he like Gin Because she was different Come on, give me something new I saw a lot of cliches mashed up in the characters Felix s dad was a big cliche in my opinion.The ending was surprising and, for such a slow paced book, it weirdly felt right.Also, I think the cover fits the book really well and I like it.I think Crow Flight stands as exactly what it is a debut novel It has its flaws and uses some cliches, but it s not a bad book Some people might enjoy it then others.I want to read some of Susan Cunningham future work to see her improvement I see some potential in this new author

seemed pretty awkward and forced.The characters were interesting especially the mathematical focus each of them tends to have But Gin was such a nerdy clich And again the relationships and interactions were awkward The relationship between Gin and Felix seemed a bit fast while the story itself seemed a little slow It was pretty ironic in that sense The concept was original and much different than what I thought it would be, though The plot was somewhat interesting, but it was a struggle to get through it I must admit I didn t Ike the ending at all Everything seemed to work out pretty much perfectly and Gin s relationship with Felix was fixed in such a forced way The end was disappointing, and the story overall lacked a spark.To BuyCome To My Blog Check Out My Happy Reading

plain, and I had trouble getting into the story and connecting with the characters The main character was annoyingly anal about everything and the love interest had no interesting qualities whatsoever aside from the fact that he trains crows The romance felt contrived and awkward, and I found myself trying really, really hard to push through and finish the story even though I started getting really bored about 100 pages in Unfortunately, I had to drop this.Things I Liked I really liked Hannah A lot of times with YA, authors tend to make the protagonist s best friend bitchy or borderline annoying, but this time I ended up liking the best friend than the main character To be honest, I think this story would have been so much better if told from Hannah s perspective as she tried to find love using Gin s matchmaking system The cover is fitting for the book and is the main reason I actually picked this one up It s very visually appealing.I liked the concept of the crows and trying to figure out what they were doing and why they kept appearing around Felix but I was just a little disappointed when I found out it was because he trains crows and not for some other cool mysterious reason.The writing was very descriptive and easy to read.Things I Didn t Like The pacing was way too fast One day would go by and then suddenly it was a month later And nothing would happen The pacing was fast, but absolutely nothing would happen in the story so it also felt extremely slow.Felix Oh goodness, Felix I didn t like him at all The way he dresses seems very juvenile beaded necklace and flip flops which I know seems like a weird thing to complain about considering it s YA but it bothered me all the same The romance was just weird. Felix had virtually nothing to do with Gin outside of class for months and then the one day she spots him outside of school he s suddenly into her No There s no chemistry and it wasn t clear to me why exactly Felix started to like her in the first place It felt so contrived and random, and it progressed awkwardly.Gin was sort of annoying I know her character is supposed to be anal but there s a difference between being anal and being obsessive Her best friend was much interesting and relatable.It was boring I feel awful for saying it but I just couldn t get interested in what was going on I m sure it s a great book for some people but it s just not my cup of tea.Overall, I would recommend this to teens that like contemporary romance I wouldn t recommend this to people that like fast paced stories with a lot of action mystery because you ll be disappointed I didn t hate this book per se but I definitely won t be rereading this or trying to finish it flag Like see review Sep 21,

getting into the book, I was thinking this was going to be like the Matrix with a little twist with some Crows into it I was totally wrong and that s a good thing The beginning of the book hooked me and I needed to know of what was going to happen and therefore I could not wast any time with anything else besides reading the whole book to find out.From the beginning, we are introduced to a very intelligent young girl name Gin Gin has a dream to get into Harvard University She has a talent for designing programs Programs that help you on what to wear, what to eat, when to be social, and possibly who you should date Going to Harvard is not her only goal Gin is taking a computer simulations class that is a college level course The mentor of the class is Ms Sandlin who is offering a summer internship to the best modeler Gin who is determined to get this internship and put her talents to the test to achieve this goal Gin meets a boy in her class name Felix Felix is also very intelligent with computers and designing programs They are partners where they have to work together and design models Gin starts to fall for Felix and learns that he and his father like to train Crows as a hobby A plane flew across the sky and for a second, she imagined the rows of people tucked neatly inside, watching movies and sipping sodas No idea they were flying over a boy training crows For their final project, they decided to use the Crows and all the data over the years Felix s father who owns one of the biggest tech companies is not too excited about learning that his son and his partner are using the Crows for their project With that being said things get really interesting and a dark secret that Gin will soon discover Susan Cunningham was detailed with her writing and I enjoyed every second of it She did a wonderful job putting this story together and the pace of the story was perfect where I just wanted to know what was going to happen I adore Gin s and her best friend Hannah relationship We all need a Hannah in our life s The ending was great Highly recommend this lovely gem I am not big on computers or designing but this story was just too good where

There was an element of mystery that kept me intrigued The arrival of Felix and the strange crows he seemed to always be around was so mysterious I didn t want to put it down until I knew Unfortunately it took over half the book to get that answer Usually that wouldn t be a deal breaker for me, but the story seemed to drag on without much happening The relationship between Felix and Gin was unusual to me His character never seemed interested in her even when he actually was I had a hard time seeing why they were interested in each other, other than the fact that they both enjoyed computer models If you enjoy computer sciences and modeling I think you would really enjoy this book There were specifics related to how a computer model works in great detail I found those bits to be interesting at times and a little boring at other times Sadly my interests don t involve computer sciences so I was probably not the right audience for this story The biggest problem I had with this book was the ending The entire storyline was moving so slow and then right at the end every conflict happened one after another It felt rushed and forced on the reader I wish the conflict and resolution had been better fleshed out I think the concept behind this book was unique It was an interesting read, but the story didn t flow for me and was hard to get through flag Like see review Jan

secret hiding in their data I enjoyed the third act of this book, but I made it there by sheer will alone The characters initially felt like caricatures of teen stereotypes that have been played out in this genre Relationships and conflicts in this book flow with ease at some points and seem forced and wedged in at others e.g view spoiler Gin s best friend is largely left out of the latter half of Crow Flight, as a result of a spat that hardly seemed large enough to cause a schism between two long time friends hide spoiler I struggled with the pacing of this book as well Much of the book passes slowly, uneventfully, with the final act jammed full of action I wish had been expanded upon or at least kicked off earlier in the book The saving grace of Crow Flight, for me, was Gin and Felix s relationship Despite the clich s, their friendship and the relationship that bloomed from it had a depth and genuine quality that is hard to capture Overall, a really solid YA read, but not

going on with him and, of course, with his family s pet crows In the beginning, their behavior seems almost magical to the point that I almost thought this had fantastical elements at one point, but it doesn t they weren t actually talking to the crows, they are just very well trained.The story itself did drag in some places, but it also really kept me invested I didn t want to put it down I was a bit disappointed in the ending, as I was expecting of a final confrontation, but if there was one, it happened offstage somewhere It was a satisfying ending, I just wish we had seen it on the page,

how he introduces her to new experiences Felix draws her out of her analytical shell and opens her emotionally The writing was creative, vivid and a nice pacing There were a few thoughts that nagged at me a bit throughout the book but didn t detract from the rating there is some areas in which Felix s behaviour could be interpreted as manipulative in a small way near the end of the book Gin doesn t hear from him for a while, reaches a point where she still misses him and then he comes back and they don t talk about what happened There was a fair amount of kissing in the book new, first relationship but bit too often The other characters had dimensions their motivations, relationships, the crows were amazingly researched and described The cover is amazing and true to the story flag

The book description appealed to me because I can relate to this nerdy girl having been one myself as a teenager and also because I thought the ideas about having apps to control every aspect of your

perspective It is a quick read, but the descriptions of the crows and their flights patterns were a bit dull for my taste The ending for me was very forced and something about the way it ended with Gin and Felix provoked me deeply but I am not a young teenage girl any, so maybe this ending will appeal to the correct age group flag Like see review Nov 27, 2018 Nicole rated it it was amazing Crow

What is it about mysterious boy with shaggy hair that attracted girl, even the sane one One of YA mystery I guess or is it just a product writers like to recycle because it have an attraction to it.The story was about Gin, who got put together with Felix to work as a team in their computer modeling class, they start spending a lot of time together This is where the love story begins, but sometimes their relationship felt a bit unrealistic.The story and writing was decent Not enough to pull me Wh [...]

    7. The ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Abandoned after 10 chaptersIt s a bit intriguing, and I like how it has a contemporary feel despite being kinda futuristic sci fi, but it just doesn t really draw me in, and I don t really care about what s going to happen
