Vocabulary Quiz Available
This is the first book in a series, and if you're looking for a fast paced book, James Patterson has written just the book for you! The characters are Max, (Maximum Ride) Fang, Iggy, Nudge, and Angel. What makes these kids different is that they are genetically different more along the lines is that their DNA is half human and half bird so they have bird-like abilities and wings. They are on the run from the school (you find out what kind of school if you read the book) with more messed up kids chasing after them like wolves--pun intended. As they are on the run more things lift them up and others come crashing down. I won't give you the story, you'll have to read it yourself to find out. So get going on this book--I promise you you'll finish it quick because you won't be able to put it down!
