Lionsgate is in talks to acquire Anna Carey's Blackbird. Summary:
Written in the second person, its follows a young girl who wakes up on the tracks of the Los Angeles subway with no memory; a tattoo on her wrist of a blackbird and a code; and a backpack containing clothes, $1,000, a phone number and instructions not to call the police.
