Maximum Ride: Vol 1 – James Patterson & NaRae Lee


After being exposed as a girl, Jacky Faber is forced to leave the Dolphin and attend the elite Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston.  But growing up on the streets of London and fighting pirates never prepared Jacky for her toughest battle yet: learning how to be a lady.

Everything she does is wrong.  Her embrodery is deplorable, her French is atrocious, and her table manners–disgusting!  And whenever Jacky roams the city in search of adventure, trouble is never far behind.  Then there’s the small matter of her blue anchor tattoo….

So will Jacky ever become a typical lady?  Not bloody well likely!  But whether she’s triumphing over her snobbish classmates, avenging a serving girl’s murder, or winning over a stubborn horse that’s as fast as the wind, one thing’s for sure: Jacky’s new life in Boston is just as exciting as her old one on the high seas.

These are good books and I think they did a good job turning them into a graphic novel series.  There were only a few pages where there wasn’t really enough action for me to figure out what happened until I turned a couple more pages.  I like all the drawaings of the characters except Fang.
