Author Info
James Patterson
James Patterson grew up in Newburgh, New York, 50 miles north of New York City. Valedictorian of his class at the Christian Brothers school, St. Patrick's, in 1965, Patterson graduated from Manhattan College with a degree in English. He first entertained the idea of becoming a writer in 1971 when he worked as a college student in a mental institution, a job that afforded him abundant time to read. He came up with the idea for his first novel during that time, and five years later, after 26 rejection slips, his first effort, "The Thomas Berryman Number", appeared in bookstores. Since that time, Patterson has written numerous best-selling thrillers featuring the sensitive, modern-day hero Alex Cross, including "Kiss the Girls", which was made into a major motion picture starring Morgan Freeman.
Praise
"Nonstop action carries this page-turner breathlessly from start to finish...Speed, suspense, excitement."
From the Publisher
Annotation In this high-speed tale of cross-country adventure and intense danger, 14-year-old Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, and siblings Angel and the Gasman have one very unusual thing in common--wings. The six were raised by nefarious scientists as genetic experiments at the oppressive, terrifying "School," where they were each treated to a tiny helping of bird genetics that gave them not only flight, but incredible eyesight and super strength. With help from Jeb, a sympathetic scientist, the six managed to flee, living together in peace and happiness. That is soon shattered when their youngest and dearest member, six-year-old Angel, is kidnapped by Erasers--ferocious, man/wolf agents of the School. Some of the same characters are featured in James Patterson's adult novels WHEN THE WIND BLOWS and THE LAKE HOUSE.
First Line Congratulations. The fact that you're reading this means you've taken one giant step closer to surviving till your next birthday.
Editors Note 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 blazing hot 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 save the world--but can she?
Editors Note 3 After the mutant Erasers abduct the youngest member of their group, the "bird kids," who are the result of genetic experimentation, take off in pursuit and find themselves struggling to understand their own origins and purpose.
