Maximum Ride (Graphic Novel)

Maximum RideMaximum Ride

By: James Patterson

James Patterson’s graphic novel Maximum Ride is a compelling story about Maximum, a fourteen-year-old genetically altered teenager with amazing flying abilities.  With the weight of the world on her shoulders, Maximum works to keep her small “flock” of friends safe from the menacing “school” (AKA the lab). But when the school finds Maximum’s hideout and kidnaps their youngest member, the flock embarks on a journey to rescue her.  In the process they find much more than any of them bargained for.

I found this to be a riveting adaptation of James Patterson’s YA series.  This story is a cross between XMen and the Maze Runner series.  If you like dystopian fiction and graphic novels, you will like this!
