Synopsis (from Goodreads):
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.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Savannah Grey has something in her throat, a weapon of some sort which she believes must be used to destory a monster. I must admit, going into this book I was excited because it's incredibly different from what is out there (Young Adult wise), but the first half of the book seemed rushed. Thankfully, once you hit the middle it begins to pick up. The relationship with Reece and Savannah, though, again, rushed, is a strong one - they share the same problem, or so she thinks. The strongest part of this book would have to be the ending, its one that will have the reader sitting in shock. I didn't love the book, but I wouldn't go as far as to say it's terrible. It is definitely an interesting read.
