By Malinda Lo
A fast-paced, romantic thriller with a twist, from the acclaimed author of ASH.
Flocks of birds are hurling themselves at aeroplanes across America. Thousands of people die. Millions are stranded. Everyone knows the world will never be the same.
On Reese's long drive home, along a stretch of empty highway at 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.
For Reese, though, this is just the start. She can't remember anything from the time between her accident and the day she woke up almost a month later. She only knows one thing: she's different now. Torn between longtime crush David and new girl Amber, the real question is: who can she trust?
This is the long-awaited new novel from the author of ASH: read on with the eBook novella NATURAL SELECTION (for all fans of Reese and Amber!) and the sequel, INHERITANCE.
