Max: a Maximum Ride Novel
By James Patterson
Little, Brown, and Co., 2009. 309 pgs. Young Adult
Max and her flock (genetic engineered kids with wings) continue their work with the “Stop the Madness” organization that promotes environmental friendly living. While en route to their next event, Max’s mom, who headed up the organization, is kidnapped. It is up to Max to save the day and according to the voice in her head, the world.
Patterson has toned down the environmentalism and picked up the action from his last book. There is hope that the next book will return to how the series began with great action and snarky attitude without an agenda, but to entertain.
