Publisher's Summary

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 genetically engineered by sinister scientists. Her friends brave a journey to blazing hot Death Valley, California, 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 to save the world - but can she?

Well I'm hooked!

I stumbled across this story of Maximum Ride in the movie of the same name. I wanted to read the whole story. First I saw it was written by an author I don't usually read and assumed his books were mostly crime dramas. Did not know James Patterson could create such an adorable group of characters. They leaped off the pages and into my heart. To my delight I can see there are a lot of books and stories about these young adults. And I'm hooked enough to feel the need to read them all...so onto the next "Ride"...

James Patterson is my favorite!!!!

I was so excited to find this on audible that I signed up and forced my 3 brothers, sister, neice and son to listen to it while we were all trapped in a van driving cross country... at first no one wanted to hear some lady talking while they slept. Slowly everyone woke up and was wondering what they were listening to. by the end of the 14th chapter they all wanted me to restart this book... we listened from the eastern border of Arizona all the way home to Monterey CA. safe to say they all want to watch the movie and read the rest of the books.... James Patterson is my favorite author of all time I love his work
