Adaptation

5 out of 5 rating. 4 Reviews
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.

About the Book

In the aftermath of a series of plane crashes caused by birds, 17-year-old Reese and her debate-team partner, David, receive medical treatment at a secret government facility and become tangled in a conspiracy that is, according to Reese's friend, Julian, connected with aliens and UFOs.

About the Author

Malinda is the former managing editor of AfterEllen.com, and an award-winning journalist for her work in LGBT media. She studied X-Files fan communities when she was receiving her MA in Anthropology, which is where she got the inspiration for Adaptation. She now lives in Northern California with her partner and their dog. Ash was her first novel, and received many accolades and was a finalist for the Lambda Award, Norton Award, and Morris Award among others.

Editorial Reviews

"Lo invokes a paranoid X-Files sensibility here, layering conspiracy atop conspiracy and balancing ambitious twists with nuanced relationships that are ultimately as important to the sci-fi plotting as they are to the character development."
