Fierce teen Maximum Ride takes flight to discover the truth about the mysterious genetic experiments that gave her and her friends wings, in the high-octane start to James Patterson’s #1 New York Times bestselling series!

Maximum Ride and her "flock," Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel, are ordinary kids—only they have wings and can fly. It may seem like a dream come true to some, but while they’re on the run from the “School” that cruelly experimented on them, their lives can morph into a nightmare at any time.

When Angel, the youngest member of the flock, is kidnapped and taken back to the School, her friends set off to rescue her, facing off against the half-human, half-wolf "Erasers” designed to stop them. Their journey takes them closer and closer to the secrets of their past…and their future—one where Max is responsible for saving the world.

Love Maximum Ride? Don’t miss out on the seven novels of the Maximum Ride series, and her next chapter in Hawk and Hawk: City of the Dead!
