Reese can't remember anything from the time between the accident and the day she woke up almost a month later. She only knows one thing: She's different now.

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.

They struck the ground with such orce that their bodiessmashed into dark slicks on the concrete.“What the—” Reese Holloway pushed hersel out o the hardplastic seat acing the foor‑to‑ceiling windows. Outside, heatwaves rippled over the oil‑stained runway. She glanced back atDavid, her orehead wrinkled. “Did you see that?David Li looked up rom his book. “See what?” His darkbrown eyes refected the hard, bright daylight in tiny dots o white.Reese tried to swallow the futter o sel‑consciousness thatrose within her as David met her gaze. She pointed at the win‑dows. “These birds just ell dead rom the sky.”Davids eyebrows rose. “No way.“Yeah.”
