Maximum Ride: The Angel ExperimentBy James Patterson
Six unforgettable kids—with no families, no homes—are running for their lives. Max Ride and her best friends have the ability to fly. And that's just the beginning of their amazing powers. But they don't know where they come from, who's hunting them, why they are different from all other humans... and if they're meant to save mankind—or destroy it.
In this book max leads her flock through the grasps of the “school”. The school is where they were created, mutated, beaten and tested on. After escaping with the help of a former white coat Jeb, they hide out in a secret estate in hopes of living normal lives. but soon after that Jeb disappears. Now the six kids are living on their own. Although they once thought they were safe they now know that they can no longer stay in one place. The Erasers- another form of experiment from the school- have found their location and are tracking them down, trying to drag them back to the school- alive or injured. Max shows just how strong she is when shes leading them across cities and countries trying to keep her ‘family’ safe. But when she gets put to the test can she be strong enough to fight for them?
What i like about this book is how it starts out and talks about their previous life in the school. This is already intense and continues to rise throughout the book. It leaves you wanting to read the whole book in the first sitting, its extremely hard to put down and its just absolutely amazing. It takes the position of a girl going through her life struggles protecting her family. Only her struggles are a lot more extreme than those of an ordinary teenager. Its life or death for these kids. And their never in one place for too long.
