Maximum Ride: School's Out--Forever

By James Patterson

Max is sure that a microchip has been inserted under her skin—leading freakish forces of evil to ambush them at any moment. She and the others are supposed to save the world. But from what? And When? And How? Max will stop at nothing to find answers. One thing she does know: it’s got something to do with an astonishing ability they have that no others can claim. They can fly.
Max’s heart-stopping quest to protect her “family” and investigate the mind-blowing mystery of her ultimate destiny continues in the scariest, strangest, and funniest James Patterson thriller yet.
The angel experiment was just a test drive. Now, brace yourself for the maximum ride!

This is the second book in the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson. I read the first book, The Angel Experiment a few years ago and just decided for the heck of it to pick up the next one. It was a series that was fun to read, but didn't really seem to have any value other than entertaining you for a few hours. This second book is much like the first. It's a page-turner and something is always happening to the flock, a bunch of mutant kids with avian (bird) DNA fused into their human DNA. They are being chased by the people who created them, and they want them back. And Max, the heroine of the story, is supposed to save the world. They're trying to find out from who and what is going to happen. Along with trying to find their parents...and oh, surviving would be nice. Filled with action and adventure, it's a non-stop trip, though sometimes a bit too unreal. I don't remember this from the first book, but this book sure does take the Lord's name in vain a lot. Rubbed me the wrong way. Just fair warning. Other than that, you've got battles with wolf-bird hybrids and a few scenes of bloodiness, but that's it for parental guidance from me. Check it out if you like that sort of thing.
