The Angel Experiment-- James Patterson

Release Date: April 1, 2007
Pages: 464
Genre: Sci-fi/Adventure
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 genetically engineered by sinister scientists. Her friends brave a journey to 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 she the world--but can she?
Review: I really enjoyed this book. I've heard bits and peices about it throughout the years it's been out, but I've never had the interest to pick it up myself. I'm really glad I did. This was a great escapist book, and almost completely clean. I LOVED that. The author actually put "[insert swear word of your choice here]"! I breathed a massive sigh of contentment. I'm usually not that picky about swear words, but I've had such bad luck with books lately, that this just made me happy. :)

I'm not in a huge hurry to read the rest of the series, but I think I'll most certainly be picking them up someday when I need an escape.
