    ARC provided by Netgalley in 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 more than I expected and what a pleasant surprise! This book was exciting, romantic, clever and so much more! It is told from the point of view of an extremely intelligent girl named Gin who loves to cre...

    *2.75 Stars*I was provided an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Gin is starting her senior year in high school and the only class she's excited for is computer modelling. She is already very good in it, since her father has been making models since forever and so has she. Her models tell her how to dress and what to do, they dictate every part of her life. Everything changes when she runs into Felix. She is immediately attracted ...

    I thought this book was a decent read.I'll start with what I like. The whole concept that life is ilogic and it's better to live in the persent was ust so beautiful and unique. I really liked reding about it. It was also relatable for me, as person who trusts logic a lot and overthinks everything.I saw some people saying they didn't like the writing style. I, on the other hand, enjoyed it. It was a little bit confusing, there was deffinintly some...

    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 s...

    This story was beautifully written and poetic with spiritual mystery weaved in throughout. I loved how it combines several disciplines of science (including biology and computer science) to take you on an exciting journey through the eyes of a self proclaimed "nerdy" teenage girl trying to overcome her logical tendencies. She dives in to the mysterious and becomes fascinated and absorbed by the unknown and finding true love. I loved the aspect wi...

    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

    An interesting and well thought out novel about teenage computer savants, and what happens when you know something you shouldn't. Thanks to NetGalley, Susan Cunningham, and Amberjack Publishing for an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

    Rating: 2/5 starsI have to say I was a little disappointed by this book.Crow Flight is about a girl Gin who is a computer programmer who relies on logic a little too much. When she meets new boy in school, Felix, their relationship flourishes and he challenges everything she knows. They are paired together on a project analyzing crows which leads Gin to a terrible secret.Right off the bat, there’s something off about the narration. I’m not su...

    Gin was an interesting character. She lives her life by logic and rules and she knows what her plan is for her life. She even designs programs to help her decision making process go smoothly. I found it hard to relate to her when it came to that, although the idea of having a program design outfits for me without thinking about it sounds pretty nice.Her best friend Hannah was awesome and probably my favorite character in this book. She doesn't m...

    I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I love this book so much! The characters are rich and real, the plot is intense. The intrigue and conflict in the story is what really hooked me. This wasn’t just another cute, fluffy contemporary love story. This book has some serious conflict. And while I maybe had hoped for a little more action, the exposition and ultimate resolution were still nerve wracking to r...

    Crow Flight is exciting and well-written young adult fiction. It's a book I would gladly add to my classroom shelf and use for independent reading...and I'm sure some hungry readers would gobble it up quickly. Cunningham has created an interesting character in Gin, and one I'm sure students would relate to in many ways.

    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 re...

    I received a free digital copy of this book from Edelweiss+ in exchange for an honest review.Real Rating: 2.5 StarsTo be honest, I couldn't really find many faults with this book other than the fact that it's very average. The plot felt very lackluster and 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 wh...

    I VOLUNTARILY READ AND REVIEW THIS ADVANCE COPY FROM NETGALLEY. ALL THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS ARE MY OWN, THANK YOU.I'm very very VERY thrilled that I gave this book a chance. No mystical creatures, no royal families trying to take over the world its just a smooth read from the beginning to the very end. I could not put this book down. This is my first Susan Cunningham book I read from her and she brought it all in this lovely gem. I was a bit ner...

    Synopsis: Gin is the kind of girl who dreams big. As far back as she can remember she has wanted to go to Harvard and has put all her energy so far into making this her reality. She is all about logic, data and probability; a computer program she made decides even her wardrobe for her. But when she meets Felix, the new boy in school, she begins to wonder if there is more to life than her data could show. Who is he? Why can’t she explain her att...

    I was able to read this book through Netgalley to provide feedback and my honest review.Gin is quite possibly a computer genius. She is able to make complex computer models and her dream is to attend Harvard some day. When a new boy, Felix, shows up at school her focus is turned. Felix winds up in her modeling class and becomes her new partner. As they work through their final project terrible secrets are found and Gin has to make a tough decisio...

    I'll be the first to admit, I'm usually one of the last people to pick up YA novels, but the premise of Crow Flight caught my attention. The story follows the hyper-logical, highly intelligent programmer Regina "Gin" Hartson. Crow Flight begins as Gin starts her senior year of high school, gunning for Harvard and unwilling to let anything get in her way. In her exclusive computer modeling class, she is partnered with the new kid at school, Feli...

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. DNF @ 50%I wanted to love this book so bad, I'm so disappointed I didn't.When I read this synopsis I was like: "Now, this is a book for me!" I mean an MC who's into CS and modeling? I was sold.I was so excited when I got the email saying I was accepted to get an ARC of this book.But unfortunately it just didn...

    Another review for NetGalley, and it was a very pleasant surprise! I enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would. Not that I had a bad expection, but I had no expectations at all.Let’s start with our main character, Gin. I absolutely loved her. More stories about nerd girls, please! I could relate to her on a level that I did not expect. She loves computers and making these models and apps to help her with her life. She is awkward and h...

    “And that’s when she saw them. Perched on a lower branch and nearly hidden in all the green, were two black crows. They were looking down, heads tilted, bodies still. Unafraid. It was almost like the crows knew him”Gin is a computer programming genius, if Gin doesn’t know it then it isn’t worth knowing. She designs computer programmes in order to control her life including making daily decisions on what to wear, what to eat and how to s...

    ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.The reason I really wanted to read this book, was because of the programming element. I teach English to IT students, so programming is a part of my daily life. Admittedly, a part that I don’t know much about myself, but I’m open to learn. The programming aspect added a fun and modern twist to a story that was otherwise quite predictable, especially in the beginning. Just your typical...

    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. ...

    Disclaimer: I was provided with an ARC of this book by Netgalley so I could give an honest review.Crow Flight has alot of crows and like the name suggests surprisingly the book is literally about crow flights. The name spiked alot of interest for me, and in the start, it really hooked me on by its mysterious writing. Gin- Regina Hartson is our sweet teenager who is a little awkward and heavily relies on logic. If you bring her something that is...

    First off, I received a copy from Netgalley, but the opinions are completely my own :)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 life is interesting - in a way that relying completely on apps, can only go wrong. However, the book is a bit slow in the build-up and the whole relationship betw...

    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 co...

    My Review: I am always looking for something new in the world of young adult and when this one came up on the list I was like yes, please. This one deals with the flight of crows and yes that was as weird as it sounded. I also loved that this is in the POV of a girl named Gin I mean that name alone is just awesome. She really reminded me of Felicity from Arrow. The pace was well done and the side characters were also great. The addition of the cr...

    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 plo...

    Crow FlightSusan CunninghamTruly a unique story and one I finished in a single night. A must read for all students interested in tech and development. One of the most realistic views into the world of computer modeling and the rigors that they entail. Rife with personal development and a great love story that doesn’t follow any of the normal book writing clichés. This book was impossible to put down and I felt myself rooting for Gin and how he...
