Fiona | 4 comments I am looking for a book I read in high school about a disease causing people to grow wings. It is not 'Growing Wings' and is not "Flock of Angels".

I can only remember the following:
1) A disease makes people grow wings
2) I THINK that there was a lot of media attention
3) People committed suicide after getting disease
4) There was a type of school or hospital for people to learn how to handle their things
5) A character visited a place where he/she learned about the difficulty of finding clothes for angels.

D.M. Dutcher  | 340 comments I'd really like to read this book if it can be found. 1),4),5) can be found in the manga Haibane Renmei Anime Manga: Volume 1, but not 2) and 3). The book itself reminded me of Translucent, Volume 1, in which instead of wings, people become invisible from a disease.

I haven't been able to track anything down yet, despite the arresting premise. Although I learned that there really is an angel wing disease, but for ducks. I'll keep trying.

Check out this listopia.

I'd also do a search on the listopia page for "wings."
