I am looking for a children's fantasy book with a tribe of raven or crow people. They actually grew feathers from their skins. A preteen boy fell in love with a regular girl. I'm pretty sure she was Asian but his family kept telling him it could not work out between them. I read this book in 2004 - 2005 ish. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

    Tengu are a fairly common trope (they even have their own TV Tropes page). Likewise, teen "inappropriate romance" is incredibly common. Do you have any more information you can share with us?

Possibly the prequel to the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson. When the wind blows

The comment about the Asian girl made me think of it - there is one in the novel who one of the other bird kids has a crush on
