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 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?

My View
Personally I love the book. I mean, my dream is to fly, and here are flying children! Reading this makes my just want to fly even more. Like I mean kick butt awesomeness! Flying, fighting, goals, action. I've re-read this book so many times and talked about it so many times!!

My favorite character is by far FANG!!! He's like: emotions inside, he can turn invisible, fly, and kick butt! Fang's emotions are only showed in the movement of his jaw, or the way he flies, and only Max can pick those up. My second favorite is Angel! She is sweet, kind, and six years old. But don't let her looks fool you, she kicks Erasers butts into next week.

This book makes you want more, trust me this isn't over. Look out for this book it's awesome!

I'd like to thank the publishers so much for sending me this book! Thanks!!

  2. was right! I LOVED this series! It was so much fun to read! I mean it was really fun! I read the whole series in a week! I actually didn't want the series to end because I was having so much fun reading it! I really enjoyed the characters and got pulled into their lives, and loved it! I am anxious for my kids to read it!

    1. This has remained one of Reagan's favorite series (though after the second to last book she wasn't very happy). But in the end, she loved them! Glad you liked them so much too!
