Plot; The story follows Alex, a 15-year-old, who lives on a very small island, her sister, Olivia, has gone missing, the same night 5000 blackbirds dropped dead. The story is very much Alex struggling with the loss of her sister and she becomes heavily involved with trying to find out what has happened.
There’s not much to say about the plot without spoiling.


  • Intriguing plot
  • Gripping from start to finish
  • Quick read
  • Deals with grief and loss very well
The blackbirds have nothing to do with why/how Olivia goes missing!
I personally, found this very disappointing. It’s put on the front cover of the book, I thought it would’ve had relevance to the story. But nope. Nothing.

Overall, the book is really enjoying, it keeps you on edge, it does a good job at hooking you into the story. Just don’t go into it thinking the blackbirds dying has anything to do with Oliva going missing and you won’t be disappointed.
