Maximum Ride by James Patterson

Reviewed by C. Hutchinson, February 2017

Maximum Ride is about a teenage girl named Max. She has a “family” of 5 other kids. They’re your normal group of kids, except that they don’t have parents, don’t have a home, aren’t related, and they have wings. Yeah, wings. Max is the leader of the group, which she calls the flock, who all just escaped from the School, and are on the run before they’re found and brought back. The School isn’t a normal school with normal people. It’s a place the flock hopes they never have to see again. No one is safe, no matter where they go. If you like fantasy, action, and/or fiction books, this is a book for you.
