Maximum Ride is a girl that grew up in a dog cage, in a lab with crazy wack-job scientists (whitecoats) experimenting on her for the first ten years of her life. She and five other kids like her were saved by Jeb Batchelder. These six – Max (14), Fang (14), Iggy (14), Nudge (11), the Gasman (Gazzy, 8), and Angel (6) - were one of the only experiments that made it past infancy. They’re 98% human, and 2% avian. They have wings. For two years after that, Jeb was like a father to them. Then, he disappeared. They grieved over his death. Well, that’s what they thought happened to him. For two years, they have been living on their own. Then on one of those peaceful days, Erasers – half wolf, half human, the other experiment that made it past infancy – attack them and capture Angel! Now Max, Fang, and Nudge are rescuing Angel from the dreaded place they grew up in – the School. Will they succeed? Read Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment to find out!

Dear James Patterson,
I recently read your book, Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment. I loved it! I have a few questions, though.
Thank you for your time,

3. Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports
4. The Final Warning
All of these books spoil the books before them. (Number 7 will spoil numbers 1-6, number 4 will spoil 1-3, etc.) You have been warned.
When Fang gets severely injured by Ari, the flock has to go to a normal hospital
for help. Of course that means that the doctors discovered their wings. When
FBI agents find out about them they go to the hospital to question the flock.
One of these agents is Anne Walker, who gives the flock a home for Fang to fully
heal. But that of course, doesn’t stop the trouble from coming, the Erasers from
attacking, or Max’s Voice from telling her she has to save the world.
Max and the flock finally find out what their real purpose was: to
stop the By-Half Plan. If the By-Half plan is a success, half of the
world’s population will be destroyed. This half will then be
replaced by super humans/mutant freaks. But that’s not the only
problem the flock is facing. After they re-escape the School, Max
decides that Ari should go with them. This leads to conflict with
Fang, and two different mini flocks. Plus, the scientists at the
school have created a new type of Eraser called Flyboys. (they’re
really just robots with Eraser skin.) Will the flock get back
together? Will they stop the By-Half Plan and the Flyboys? Read
Maximum Ride: Saving the World and Other Extreme Sportsfind
Max and the flock are headed to Antarctica for a different type of mission; one
that will help stop global warming. Funny how they went from fugitives to
protectors. The flock is going to see if they can use their wings in any way that
will help get the message across. But of course their enemies aren’t going to
make this easy for them. ‘Cause it’s just never that simple.
Max and the flock have a new mission: save Max’s mother from the crazy Mr.
Chu. Through many hints they have discovered where Mr. Chu is keeping her,
it’s just a matter of getting there. But that’s not as easy as it sounds. Of
course that makes sense, ‘cause this is Max. Everything’s difficult when it’s
When the flock decides to head to Africa to help the CSM there, they are met
by some terrifying news from Angel. “Fang will be the first to die,” she says.
The scariest part? Angel has never, ever been wrong. Just to make Max’s life
even worse, she meets Dr. Hans Gunther-Hagen and Dylan the Perfect.
Apparently, Dylan is supposed to be Max’s “perfect other half.” And lately,
Angel has been getting scarier and scarier.
After Fang leaves the flock, Dylan and Max are getting closer. Max is still being told that he’s her “perfect other half.” Worst of all, she’s starting to believe it. In the meantime, Fang is starting his own flock. Both of the groups have the same goal: save the world from this new enemy, The Doomsday Group. The group is manipulating people into thinking that they should kill off most of Earth’s population, leaving only the mutants. Now, the two groups have to work together to stop this new enemy. But will they survive?
Now that Angel is possibly dead, Max and the four members of the original flock (plus Dylan) have to go on living. The first order of business? School. But soon the flock is back on track to rescue missions, saving the world, all the usual. And there is yet another enemy. The ninety-nine percenters. And this time, their enemy is not stopping at anything to achieve they’re goal. The apocalypse is coming; and nothing is stopping it now.
