Currently reading Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment, the first book in the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson.
The book is set in the near future and centers around the ‘flock’, a group of human-avian hybrids (98% human, 2% bird) on the run from the scientists who created them. It focuses on Maximum Ride (Max), the leader of the ‘flock’, with Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel—they are just like ordinary kids—only they have wi
ngs 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 scientists.
