This twisty, breathless cat-and-mouse thrill ride, told in the second person, follows a girl with amnesia in present-day Los Angeles who is being pursued by mysterious and terrifying assailants.
A girl wakes up on the train tracks, a subway car barreling down on her. With only minutes to react, she hunches down and the train speeds over her. She doesn’t remember her name, where she is, or how she got there. She has a tattoo on the inside of her right wrist of a blackbird inside a box, letters and numbers printed just below: FNV02198. There is only one thing she knows for sure: people are trying to kill her.
On the run for her life, she tries to untangle who she is and what happened to the girl she used to be. Nothing and no one are what they appear to be. But the truth is more disturbing than she ever imagined.
The Maze Runner series meets Code Name Verity, Blackbird is relentless and action-packed, filled with surprising twists.

Blackbird--what to say about Blackbird?! This is a hard one. I'm not sure how to review this book because I came in not knowing what it was about, and I went out still not knowing.
This book is one big mind screw. You spend the entire time reading the book wondering what's going on and when you're done, you're not really a step closer.
The book is about a girl who wakes up on the train tracks in California, is nearly killed--and she has no idea where she is, or who she is.
She stumbles around, trying to get answers, nearly getting herself killed, finding romance, and is still all around answer-less and confused like myself.
I'm confused, or rather I have a million questions I need answers to. The author doesn't give much and I think it was intentional. I think the author set it up to--(we can be mind screwed) lead us into book two.
Guys, I honestly don't know what to say, besides I NEED ANSWERS. I am highly curious. I just need answers!
I think I'll have a more coherent review for you after reading book two. If I don't, then...well then, I got nothing.
It's definitely a fast paced read, I'm just not sure what to make of it. I feel like I just wrote a bunch of roundabout words and I've still said nothing. Blame the book. Blame my lack of answers. Blame everyone but me.
That is all.
