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 -
From Death Valley, California, to the bowels of the New York City subway system, 14-year-old Max leads her feisty "family" on a journey of action, adventure, and soul-seeking in this #1 "New York Times" bestselling series debut.
In James Patterson's blockbuster series, fourteen-year-old Maximum Ride, better known as Max, knows what it's like to soar above the world. She and all the members of the flock--Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel--are just like ordinary kids--only they have wings and can fly. It may seem like a dream come true to some, but their lives can morph into a living nightmare at any time...like when Angel, the youngest member of the flock, is kidnapped and taken back to the School where she and the others were experimented on by a crew of wack jobs. Her friends brave a journey to blazing hot Death Valley, CA, to save Angel, but soon enough, they find themselves in yet another nightmare--this one involving fighting off the half-human, half-wolf Erasers in New York City. Whether in the treetops of Central Park or in the bowels of the Manhattan subway system, Max and her adopted family take the ride of their lives. Along the way Max discovers from her old friend and father-figure Jeb--now her betrayed and greatest enemy--that her purpose is save the world--but can she?
