After the mutant Erasers abduct the youngest member of their group, the "birdkids, " who are the result of genetic experimentation, take off in pursuit and find themselves struggling to understand their own origins and purpose. James Patterson's explosive debut in the young adult market is guaranteed to create legions of new fans for this beloved, multimillion-selling author. Fang, Iggy, Nudge, the Gasman, Angel, and Maximum: Six kids who are pretty normal in most ways-except that they're 98% human, 2% bird. They grew up in cages, living like rats, but now they're free. Riding the wind, their wings are an amazing gift and yet, their world can morph into a nightmare in a single instant. For when the bloodthirsty Erasers-half men, half-wolves genetically engineered by sick and sinister scientists-kidnap little Angel, the Flock embarks on a rescue mission that will change them forever.

Ohmigosh I LOVED this book!!! I just finished the 2nd book in the series - School's Out Forever!!! When I first started The Angel Experiment it, it didn't seem so good, but omigod it gets WAAAYYYY better!!! The thing I really liked about the book is that there's a fricken' FEMALE as the main character!!! Like, how often do you find series like that?! It is a MUST read!!!

I was shocked to discover there are at least 9 books in this series. Although I have not read even this one, I did just suffer through its film adaptation on Netflix and my teenage kids bailed early on. If I had to mention something similar, it would be The Maze Runner or I Am Number Four except this film had an affordable budget and unknown, hopefully first-time actors. Perhaps you will like the books or the movie, but I did not and know you can find better.

fourteen-year-old Maximum Ride, better known as Max, knows what it's like to soar above the world. She and all the members of the "flock"--Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel--are just like ordinary kids--only they have wings and can fly. It may seem like a dream come true to some, but their lives can morph into a living nightmare at any time...like when Angel, the youngest member of the flock, is kidnapped and taken back to the "School" where she and the others were experimented on by a crew of wack jobs. Her friends brave a journey to blazing hot Death Valley, CA, to save Angel, but soon enough, they find themselves in yet another nightmare--this one involving fighting off the half-human, half-wolf "Erasers" in New York City. Whether in the treetops of Central Park or in the bowels of the Manhattan subway system, Max and her adopted family take the ride of their lives. Along the way Max discovers from her old friend and father-figure Jeb--now her betrayed and greatest enemy--that her purpose is save the world--but can she?

Bird kids Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gazzyand Angel have never known a. Family. They grew up in cages in a science lab, and had bird genes injected into them. They were saved by Jeb, who loved and cared for them but after a couple years he disappears. The adventure carries on from there.

Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, and Angel are the human avian results of genetic experiments, and have wings. They try to evade the School, the organization that created them, the scientists who created them, and the Erasers, wolf-human mutants who work for the School.
