Baby Gone Bye Synopsis:

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.

The note attached to the baby’s blanket says, “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?”

Gabe soon discovers there are bad people 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 people like Birdie can be saved too.

Review :

Baby Gone Bye is surely one of it's kind. I haven't read this kind of story before and it sure was fun.
Gabe Delgado opens his door to a sweet little bundle of joy. Shockingly, the baby turns out to be Gabe's, with a note from the birth mom explaining she can't keep her safe.
Thrown into the uncommon role of a high school dad, Gabe grows up, learns empathy for young women and work to discover why Angel Gabriella was left on his doorstep. Though he shows moments of typical teenaged angst, with the help of his next door neighbor Abby, who has a few surprises of her own, Gabe becomes absolutely heroic.

Filled with mystery, suspense and magic, readers will really enjoy this one.
