Fourteen-year-old Maximum Ride knows what it's like to soar above the
world. She and all the members of her "flock" - Fang, Iggy, Nudge,
Gasman, and Angel - are just like ordinary kids, except they have wings
and can fly! It may seem like a dream come true to some, but for the
flock it's more like a living nightmare. When the mysterious lab known
as the "School" turns up and kidnaps their youngest member, it's up to
Max to organize a rescue, but will help come in time?
