This series is probably the best series I have ever read (and I am a veracious reader). I read the very first chapter of this book and could not put it down. Immediately after reading this book I put in an order for the rest of the series. If you are looking for action packed, emotional roller coaster kind of book then you better order this series! Maximum Ride Forever!!!

Looking for nonstop cinematic action? Looking for a page-turner? Looking for a book you will read over and over again? Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment is the book you are looking for. Out of all the four times I've read this in only 3 years, I have not been able to put it down. The fact that I DID read it four times is an example of how amazing it is! Max is that person that as soon as I met her, l wanted to be in the flock, I got to know her, I want to BE Max! Wings, wit, and everything. The book had me running out the door to the library to get the next three, with cliffhangers, action, and twists, turns, and dead ends everywhere. Read this book- heck, read the entire series. Trust me, it will have you, hook, line, and sinker.
Little, Brown Young Readers -
Sara Jane Rispoli is still searching for her missing family, but instead of fighting off a turncoat uncle and crooked cops, this time she finds herself on the run from creepy beings with red, pulsing eyes and pale white skin chasing her through the streets in ice cream trucks; they can only be described as Ice Cream Creatures. They're terrifying and hell bent on killing her, but they're also a link to her family, a clue to where they might be and who has them. While she battles these new pursuers, she's also discovering more about her own cold fury and more about the Chicago Outfit, how the past misdeeds--old murders and vendettas--might just be connected to her present and the disappearance of her family. But connecting the dots is tough and time-consuming and may finally be the undoing of her relationship with the handsome Max--who's now her boyfriend. But for his own safety, Sara Jane may have to end this relationship before it even really starts. Her pursuers who've shown her her mother's amputated finger and the head of the Chicago Outfit who's just whistled her in for a sit-down make a romance unthinkable. The only thing that matters is finding her family and keeping everyone she loves alive.
Sara Jane Rispoli is on the wrong side of the Russian mob, but closer to finding her family than ever. And she's willing to do whatever it takes to finally end this terrible journey even if the price is her own life.
The very cold fury that has seen her through the worst of her troubles is now killing her; she knows the cure, but she can't sacrifice the deadly electricity until she's rescued her family. But when she finally does rescue them, it's not the happy reunion she pictured. And the torment doesn't stop there, not even when she finally discovers Ultimate Power. Only destroying the Outfit completely can end this terrible nightmare.
Old enemies return to seek vengeance, double-crosses abound, and even more mysteries are uncovered as we rocket toward an end no one saw coming.
