BOOK REVIEW: School's Out - Forever (Maximum Ride #2) by James Patterson

Fourteen-year-old Maximum Ride and the other members of the "Flock"--Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel--are just like ordinary kids--only they have wings and can fly. It seems like a dream come true--except that they're being hunted by half-human, half-wolf "Erasers" who can fly, too.

In Book 2 of the series, the Flock members are taken under the wing of an FBI agent and try to live "normal" lives by going to school, making friends--and continuing their relentless search for their parents. But the Erasers return, forcing the Flock to abandon their search and make their escape once again. The voice inside Max's head keeps telling her that it's up to her to save the world, but this is especially challenging to do when she is faced with her ultimate match: a newer and better version of herself, Maximum Ride II. Max's heart-stopping quest to investigate the mind-blowing mystery of her ultimate destiny continues in the scariest, strangest, and funniest James Patterson novel yet.

                                                               Rate:5 out of 5 stars
My Thought:
OMG! I'm just gonna get this off my shoulders! The guy on the cover (Fang) is amazingly HOT! I can still remember me and my best friend joking around and saying he was a "GOOD LOOKING LAD!". You can just feel the attractiveness radiating off of him! HAHA
    The second Maximum Ride novel is just as jaw-dropping as the first! It begins immediately after where The Angel Experiment left off, and it doesn’t take long (maybe one chapter) for action to resume in the story. If one thing can be said of the Maximum Ride series, it’s that there is never a dull moment. I have never found myself bored reading these books. The series thrills and entertains. Like a horse running a derby, Maximum Ride doesn’t stop.
     Just to add to Max and the Flock's problems, they have to go to the most horrifying place in all of earth.......SCHOOL! The flock soon begins to attend regular school and finally start to have a normal right, but of course their lives can never be normal....cause they have WINGS, for gods sake! Even though they are trying to live a seemingly normal life, there problems seem to be following them everywhere. So, now that they are at school, they are being chased and chased by Erasers (genetically modified humans with wolves). Oh, and there is a clone! STUPID CLONE!
    Always stick together! <-------that is the message that this book is trying to send to everyone. i'm pretty sure thats also the message from book #1, but let do one book at a time.
    Seriously people! these books are addicting! READ!! READ THEM NOW!

“Did you know that wasn’t me, the other Max?” I asked.
“Right away.”
“How?” I persisted. “We look identical. She even had identical scars and scratches. She was wearing my clothes. How could you tell us apart?”
He turned to me and grinned, making my world brighter. “She offered to cook breakfast.”

“You...are...a...fridge...with wings,' Fang ground out, punching an Eraser hard with every word. 'We're...freaking...ballet...dancers.”

“I can talk to fish!" Angel said happily, water dripping off her long, skinny body. "Ask one over for dinner," Fang said, joining us.”

“Guy:How did you become blind, uh, Jeff is it?"
Iggy:Yeah, Jeff. Well, I looked directly at the sun, you know, the way they always tell you not to. If only I had listened.”
