Gabe is reading books about the Orphans of Roswell, a big human rights activist movement that Adsila was a part of.
“Lost Girls: Essays from the Roswell Orphans” is an anthology of works written by them.
“New Human” is about potentially lifesaving but illegal genetic research. One of the goals of the Orphans was to legalize some or all of this research and the technologies it involves.
“Magnolia” is a book written by Adsila’s father, Roger Bell. It’s about her mother, Margaret Bell. Her nickname was “Maggie/Magnolia”.
He’s also reading lots of online articles. He’s probably found Adsila’s old blog by now. She’d be so embarrassed.
