Publisher Description

Across North America, flocks of birds hurl themselves into airplanes, causing at least a dozen to crash. Thousands of people die. Fearing terrorism, the United States government grounds all flights, and millions of travelers are stranded.

Among them are Reese and her debate team partner and longtime crush David, who are in Arizona when the disaster occurs. On their drive home to San Francisco, along a stretch of empty highway in the middle of the Nevada night, a bird flies into their headlights. The car flips over. When they wake up in a military hospital, the doctor won't tell them what happened, where they are--or how they've been miraculously healed.

Things become even stranger when Reese returns home. San Francisco feels like a different place with police enforcing curfew, hazmat teams collecting dead birds, and a strange presence that seems to be following her. When Reese unexpectedly collides with the beautiful Amber Gray, her search for the truth is forced in an entirely new direction-and threatens to expose a vast global conspiracy that the government has worked for decades to keep secret.

Adaptation is a bold contemporary science-fiction thriller from the acclaimed author of Ash.

A must read

Such a wonderful and captivating story. A little slow after the initial excitement of the first several chapters but a story can't be all excitement. Plus what we learn about that character before the action picks up again is intriguing and such fun to read. I love the portrayal of bisexuality and the fact that its almost a non-issue which is what makes this story such a unique read. I love this genre and finally having a relatable character in that way is a breath of fresh air. Its both a small detail but big in the right way for lgbt readers, especially young women who enjoy the genre and have read countless stories featuring straight male main characters (not that those stories aren't just as brilliant). Malinda Lo is proving to be a talented and gifted writer with every book she publishes and I'm greatly anticipating this book's sequel. I'm a teacher and there are quite a few out students in my class and I believe that having well written and intriguing novels that they can relate to is essential to nurture their love of reading and to help them feel included. Thank you Ms Lo for providing such a novel.
