He s a magic baby daddy. High school senior Gabe Delgado is trying to trade his bad-boy ways for clean living. He remembers nothing about the night a mysterious girl loved him and left him at a party, except . . . there was a kind of magic around her that had nothing to do with his hangover the next day. Now he finds that "magic" in a basket on his doorstep, cooing at him like a happy little bird. Gabe, you probably already know our baby is, well, different. If not, you ll find out soon enough. Let s just say she has certain qualities most babies don t have. The thing is, I m scared. I m on my own and can t keep her safe. But you can. You re strong. You have a family to watch out for her. Bad people want her. That s why I left her with you. I don t really understand what s going on, but it has something to do with The Abolesco. Don t try to find me. Please, take care of our baby girl and love her. Okay? The Abolesco are not friends of the family. They re on baby Birdie s trail, but why? Suddenly party-boy Gabe has to man up to protect his daughter. Not so easy when her talents include vanishing into thin air. It s up to Gabe and his girl-pal Abby who has some extraordinary secrets of her own to find out what s up with something called the Scientific Academy of Merit, what the goons want with Birdie, and whether other kids like Birdie can be saved, too.
