Crow Flight Reviews
It's an interesting read. I enjoyed the dynamic between Gin and Felix. I have not read many books about programming, so this was different for me. Overall, a good story.
I received a copy of this book to review. I read this book in one setting!!! The characters were great and believable. I highly recommend this book!!! Now I want to research crows and see if they are trainable!
Crow Flight is on par with the YA greats of today like John Green (Turtles All the Way Down) and Jandy Nelson (I'll Give You The Sun). Cunningham's use of voice and dialogue is sophisticated and authentic. She's created interesting yet familiar teen characters you want to root for. The plot is fresh and engaging as the main character Gin finds herself smack in the middle of a potential cyber security crime, and she's the one revealing it! That combined with a pulsating romantic interest that com ...more
Crow Flight is a delicious novel. Gin has decided what her life should look like—and it involves logic, equations, computer models, coding, ambition, and over-achieving.

It'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
With a cover like that, I seriously wasn't expecting something like this, to be honest. I was sure it had something to do with coding, but this book honestly surprised me.
Spy crows (my patronus and some of the best animals on Earth? Check. Cute romance? Check. Being a badass coder? Check. Being a badass coder who accidentally brought someone to justice? Check.
Honestly, this was all I wanted and more. The only complaint I have is that maybe the relationship moved a bit too fast.
I received an ARC from Netgalley. All opinions are my own.
I'll start by staying the things that I liked about this book: the comprehensive explanations of the modelling, how the storylines all aligned in the end, the relationship between Gin and Felix - how they complement each other, 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 ...more
I received an electronic copy from NetGalley to write a review.
This was a fun and fast read. It took me back to high school and the emotions of a young adult. I loved how Cunningham's main character is a smart science-oriented young lady who has big ambitions. She reminds you to appreciate the intelligence of young adults.
Very fascinating to learn about crows which I knew very little about prior to reading this book. It is interesting as the plot unfolds and you learn the purpose of the crows. ...more
