Malinda Lo Announces New Book
PW’s Children’s Bookshelf just announced that Little, Brown has just bought Malinda Lo’s two-book YA series Adaptation. The premise? After an ominous series of mass bird deaths, a girl questions whether she is still human after she undergoes a mysterious procedure, and is torn between feelings for her crush David and a seductive new girl. The first book, Adaptation, is due out in fall 2012 and Malinda says it "is set in the near future United States, but not dystopian near future. It’s set like in 2014. It is not a fantasy, but I do hope it will be fantastic." Sounds so good.
