Flocks of birds are hurling themselves at aeroplanes across America. Thousands of people die. Millions are stranded. Everyone knows the world will never be the same. On Reese's long drive home, along a stretch of empty highway at night, 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. For Reese, though, this is just the start. She can't remember anything from the time between her accident and the day she woke up almost a month later. She only knows one thing: she's different now. Torn between longtime crush David and new girl Amber, the real question is: who can she trust?

This was a really enjoyable, easy to read and captivating novel; I started reading it on Sunday morning and had finished it that evening as I couldn't put it down!

Resse is a great character, she is funny, quirky and whilst being thrown into an incredible situation, she deals with everything that comes to her whilst others may have given up. The blurb is deliberately vague, and as I don't want to give anything away - the shocks and twists and brilliant and they are what kept me reading all day - all I'll say is I loved the characters, the plot and the outcome! I can't wait to read Inheritance and find out what happens next.
