Best book series ever.
The Maximum Ride novels by James Patterson are truly incredible. They are so exciting! Every page is action packed.
As they grow, they begin discovering that they have more abilities than just their wings. But I won't give those away. These kids are constantly on the run and trying to figure out ways to survive while getting betrayed by people they thought they could trust.
These books are honestly appropriate for all ages although they are listed as young adult science fiction/fantasy books. My dad and my boss read them and absolutely loved them. Not to mention like half of my friends.
There are also graphic novels out and they are making a movie based on the series. BUT it is directed by Catherine Hardwicke who also directed Twilight and pretty much screwed the whole thing up. I can only hope she does better on the Maximum Ride novels.
Speaking of turning books into movies, ya'll should check out Fantasy Casting.
