This book was so good that i could not put the book down. This book is the sequel to Maximum ride: The Angel Experiment. This book is about the six kids named Max, Fang Iggy, Nudge, Gazzy, and the cute and adorable Angel. These are not their real names, they made them up not knowing their real name. They had a guardian named Jeb.He disappeared 2 years ago. He is now on the side of the enemy. He is now working for the school. The school is a horrible place where people do experiments on small children. Jeb was the one who set the kids free and escaped with them and gave them a roof over their heads. Now the gang is in search of their parents, their purpose, and survival. This is a good read!!! I totally recommend it for action and adventure people. Even if you like science!!!! Take on the thrill of this very suspenseful and very informative book!! I give it my best compliments and i give my best regards to James Patterson who is the author odf this book..

If James Patterson were about fifty years younger, I would marry him for his stunning talent alone. He would write me endless stories about Maximum Ride and her friends and I would lie in bed eating peanut butter m&ms and read to my hearts content.

If you havent figured it out, I finished the second Maximum Ride novel; Schools Out- Forever. Alright, the title is just plain dumb, but the amazing adventure just keeps rolling. Actually if it were up to me I would have named it something completely different, like maybe something that actually related to the majority of the book instead of just a fourth of it. But I digress. It could be called Billy the Space Jelly Bean for all I care, this book would cancel out the stupidest of titles with its epic plot and heart breaking character development.

Without giving away too much of the first book; Schools Out-Forever follows Max, Fang, and the rest of them once again. The gang is attacked on the beach and Fang gets hurt bad enough to actually admit that hes hurt& which is pretty bad. They are forced to take him to the hospital where the doctors tell the FBI that theyre treating a group of winged mutant freaks& which is pretty bad. They are taken in by one of the agents claiming to want to protect them and go to live in a huge sprawling country house with plenty of room to fly& which, in retrospect, is pretty good. Unfortunately, with great real estate comes great responsibility. The kids are forced to enroll in school and so off they go to get an education for the first time in their lives& which is really bad.

This book felt like a perfect continuation of the first. It hardly even seemed like a separate book. Where most series seem to take time to pick up the pace and get into the meat of the story just like any other book, Schools Out moved flawlessly from the cliffhanger ending of the first book. It wasnt a separate story, just a continuation of the adventure. And, in all honesty, I actually liked this one better and heres why;

Patterson is so dedicated and true to his characters development from the last book that not only did we get to see some great plots and mutant kid action, but he began to play around with the inter-flock relationships. Theres some dissent, rebellion, jealousy, and even a little romance all within the six tightly woven main characters. Ive decided that my favorite character is Fang with Max in close second. Fang is a mysteriously complex and yet you know his loyalty and love for the flock and never once question it. He gets so angry when somebody threatens the people he loves, and hes risked his life on several occasions just to sock it to somebody whos pissed him off.

The climax, I feel, came a little bit too late in the book and was just a bit too short. My heart was pounding through the whole end, but it seemed to resolve itself too quickly. That, the talking dog, and an infuriating (in a good way) opponent are the only complaints I have about this book. Obviously I want you to read this book, but read Maximum Ride first or you will have no clue what is going on.

This is the second book in the thrilling Maximum Ride series, and I have to say, it was just as amazing as the first.

Max and her flock are still being hunted, but theyre not sure by whom. Their flight takes them to a wide array of places, including somewhere they thought theyd never have to return to: the School. Max finds out that she has some kind of microchip under her skin and finds that shes beginning to head voices, whether from the microchip or not, shes not sure. To add to that, they might not be the only mutants besides the Erasers.

Since the first book in this series is one of my favorites, I didnt hesitate to pick the sequel up. I wasnt disappointed at all, as the story continued to be amazing. I still love Max as a character, though I might love Fang and his snarky comments even more. I highly recommend this book to everyone, but if you havent read the first in the series, The Angel Experiment, then be sure to check it out.

Although it's best to read the first book before you read this one, you could still read this one by itself.

Max and her flock are half bird so they have wings and other special abilities. This is due to the fact that scientists had tinkered with their genetic material. The characters are Max, Iggy, Fang, the Gasman, Nudge and Angel. All of them are special in their own way, and some of them have special abilities. Max can fly extremly fast. the Gasman can imitate voices well. Nudge can sense things about the people who have handled things that she touches so she's great with computers. Angel can read minds and influence thoughts.

Max and the Flock try to live a somewhat normal life, and try to find their parents. However, the scientists at the lab they came from are still after them. It has a lot of complicated twists, involving things like the plans of Ari, Max's so called brother and "Eraser," half human and half wolf, so this book is really hard to describe, but easy and great to read. To get a better idea of what it's about, read an excerpt somewhere.

Max is really a great character that anyone will connect to. She has a great atitude and is really funny. The book is really surprising and a great read anytime.
