Maximum Ride and the other members of the flock are just like ordinary kids–only they have wings and can fly. It seems like a dream come true..until they’re hunted by the world’s nastiest villains.
Max returns in a chilling adventure unlike any other. Safe havens for the six highly-sought-after winged kids have become increasingly hard to find, so the flock takes refuge in Antarctica with a team of environmentalists studying the effects of global warming. In this remote wilderness–whether pursued by corrupt governments, bioengineered bad-guys, or the harsh forces of nature–survival of the fittest takes a new twist.
I like the characters in Maximum Ride, and I love that a little romance seems to be developing. What I didn’t like about this book was that it got a little preachy. Global warming is a major issue, I acknowledge that, I don’t need to be smacked in the face with it! – Jessica, Teen Librarian
