The Angel Experiment

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?

This book is great! I’ve only read the sample at the time of writing this, but I love it already! Jaiden Animations on YouTube mentioned this book in one of her recent videos and I was like “why not check it out?” I don’t regret it. Nice book. 55

YES! (Fang and max 4 life)5 star

This is an amazing series. Just remember if you are just starting it the first 3 books are the best. In any true fans heart the first 3 books ARE THE MAXIMUM RIDE SERIES there are no other books there is no movie, no marvel comic, but there's a manga. (My favorite of the books is STWAOES) aka saving the world and other extreme sports 55

Anyone who enjoys the potter books or the hunger games should read this!5 star

This is a very fast paced book and I love it! I actually enjoyed it more than the Hunger Games! It's not very dark, but I wouldn't suggest it to someone under 9. The main character Max, has a great sense of humor, so if you like anything funny and face paced fantasy/adventure, this book is FOR YOU! 55
