Imagine that you were taken away from your families before you could remember and you only remember living inside a dog crate for all of you life. Each and every day you were taken from you crate and forced in to experiments where you were poked and prodded by needles and painful injections. Every night when you go to sleep you wonder if you'll wake up in the morning and a piece of you dosent because it would be better than the hell you were going through. Your only hope and chance of survival is the kids you call your family. Five other kids that are going through the same thing you are going through are your only hope. You wake up scared to death because one of your family is missing and you are hoping and praying that you will see them again, praying for god to let him live through another expiriment. You can't fight back because when you do the white coats put you out and you wake up with them digging around in your insides. You hope you don't survive it because you know if you survive this you'll be forced through things unimagenable.
Then hopes comes knocking and you are released by one of the white coats to run through the dark night, hopfully fast enough so that the Erasers won't catch you. You run to a cliff and never ever turning back you dive off in desperation to get away. You spread your wings and you fly away into the sky, the only place were you are free. Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, and Angel is your only priority now.
Maximum Ride is a heartstopping, exhilirating free ride. The characters are perfect in the story and compliment one another in their four book series. It's full of action and a bit of romance and it has to do with six avian-human hybrids always on the run. The best part is they can fly. This is a seriously amazing seiries, don't let the cover fool you, after your done with one you'll be kicking yourself for not getting the next.
"Fang was up high, doing steep circling moves, banking, practicing the techniques he'd learned from the hawks out west. It was hard to see him-except when he passed infront of the moon..." -Max
"A second later we were laughing so hard it brought tears to my eyes all over again. Fang and I leaned against each other and laughed and laughed, unable to speak, for the longest time..." - Max
"Your a fighter not a mom"
"I can't be both?" -Fang and Max
Pick up this book and you'll be just as obbsessed as I am, you won't regret it...
