Lo, Malinda  
Adaptation
Ages 15 and up. Across North America, birds hurl themselves against airplanes, causing crashes and thousands of deaths. The US government grounds all flights, stranding travelers, including Reese. As she drives through the night, a bird flies into her headlights, and the car flips over. She wakes up in a military hospital, but the doctor won't tell her where she is, or how she's been miraculously healed. Back home, San Francisco feels like a different place, with a 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 a new direction, and threatens to expose a conspiracy that the government has worked for decades to keep secret.
