After a humiliating performance at nationals, all Reese wants to do is get home as quickly as possible so that she can start avoiding David, her debate partner, and Mr. Chapman, their coach.  But when a series of freak bird related crashes kills hundreds and grounds all air travel, the trio are forced to drive a rental back to San Francisco.  With police barricades limiting their route options, everyone  panicking, and birds continuing to act strangely, just getting out of Arizona may be more than they can manage.

I like a lot of different sff, but I’ve never been a big fan of the kind of tales that revolve around Area 51 and alien abduction.  So while this book will never be a favorite of mine, it says a lot that I enjoyed it as much as I did.  (The romance between Reese and Amber helped with that.)  I definitely want to see what happens to Reese, Amber, and David – and I may even be a little curious about the government conspiracy as well.
