Maximum Ride has been my favorite book for 2 years now. My best friend, Janelle, pointed it out to me. I was a bit leery at first, since, you know, James Patterson is a thriller writer. But when I first read the prolouge, I was sucked into it more than you can imagine. Action sequences, romance, family!!! All rolled into one amazing series. I mean, it can't get any better than Maximum Ride, am I right?
