Maximum Ride

Maximum Ride is a series of young adult science fiction fantasy novels by the American author James Patterson. The series tells about the lives of six fugitive children, Max, Fang, Iggy, Gasman, Nudge, and Angel, known collectively as the Flock. Created in a laboratory called the School, they underwent scientific experiments that rendered them 98% human and 2% avian. The film is scheduled for release in January 2014 although it was originally scheduled for release in 2010.

In the first three books of the series, the Flock spends much of their time running from human-lupine hybrids (called Erasers) created by the School; Book 4 is mainly about the Flock rising against global warming; Book 5 is about saving Dr. Martinez while battling environmental pollution; Book 6 is about rescuing Fang; and Book 7 is about stopping the Doomsday Group from destroying the world's population of non-mutated humans. The books are divided into two sets: The Fugitives (books 1–3) and The Protectors (books 4–8). The series shares a few similarities with two of Patterson's previous books, When the Wind Blows and The Lake House.
