    "You've gotta soar to survive."

    Hey everyone. This blog will be a small series review.
    This year, I was fortunate enough to find amazing friends that recommended an interesting book series to me. This series goes by the name of Maximum Ride; the main character in all eight books. She is also accompanied by her "siblings" named Fang, Iggy, Nudge, The Gasman, and Angel.

    Maximum is a daring teenaged girl, who is 98% human with a crossover of 2% avian DNA. Her siblings are not related to her by blood but have grown up in the same scientific facility called "The School" and are also the same species. They all have massive wings and the ability to fly as well as differing abilities that are being discovered on their chase to freedom and safety.

    In this book series, these six children are on the run. They've escaped from "The School" where they're under constant examination and are being genetically modified daily. Tired of being held hostage, with the help of their father like figure named Jeb, they are able to live two years in freedom.

    Life isn't always as easy as it seems in the world of Maximum Ride and trouble is right around the corner. In the eight books, Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gazzy, and Angel are hiding from "The Erasers" who are also genetically modified human beings out to get the children. Erasers are human lupine hybrids and are quite destructive.

    All in all, this series is worth reading as it caught me off guard countless times. There is adventure, action, and a hint of budding romance. It is a great escape from our ordinary world to the not so ordinary world of Max.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I hope your consider this series.
