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.
Two things. 1) I rarely read straight-up thrillers/mysteries; and 2) I was initially really really really skeptical about the whole… book-written-in-second-person thing. O_O However, having recently read (and loved) Half Bad, I’ve rather changed my mind about second person. There are a few sections in that book which are written in second person; and, to my surprise, I really, really liked those sections. (What?!) So honestly, the second person alone is enough to make me super excited and curious about an entire book written in that voice. And the whole thriller/mystery thing… well, I love fast-paced books… okay honestly I’m really just curious about the second person. XD
