Description: 15 year old Savannah Grey has never felt she's belonged. She keeps her distance, so she's surprised by her attraction to the new boy Reece. Then strange things begin to happen: nature, it seems, is exerting an overpowering force on the world. Birds behave strangely; gusts of wind blow leaves so fiercely they seem to lure people away. And Savannah learns she has supernatural powers. Nature has a purpose for Savannah and her friends. For they are on course to meet the vile and evil Orcrassa, who wants to destroy the world by corrupting nature. And it wants Savannah Grey to help realise its savage intent.
I Give This ...
Now this is a first since I started reviewing books. I usually continue reading even if I don't like it. Something about the story drives me forward, so I want to finish.
With this book, it wasn't that I didn't like the story or even the characters. The simple fact was the I felt nothing for them. I read half of this book before putting aside. I came to the realization that I wasn't enjoying reading it. I wasn't registering what was going on in the story. The only reason I remember the characters names are because of the title and description. I came to the conclusion that I would much rather be reading something else.
So, this was a did not finish. Which I've decided not to rate.
