Max soars above the world . . . but in James Patterson's thrilling adventure, fantasy can come crashing down to reveal the nightmares of the Angel Experiment.

Maximum Ride and her "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.

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 whack 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: 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 that her purpose is save the world. But can she?---from the publisher

The book Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment is an action and adventure story. It is about six kids, Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, the Gasman, and Angel. They are two percent bird, so they have wings and they can fly. These people called the Erasers are trying to kill them. The Erasers look like Super Models, but they can turn into wolves, and they are always blood hungry. The kids are flying to go get Angel back from the Erasers. Read the book to find out if Angel gets saved.

I recommend this book to action and adventure lovers.
