When I read this graphic novel it was amazing how NaRae Lee was able to add so much through her illustrations without repeating what was being said. It is a quick read and keeps you engaged in what could happen next.

Curricular connection: This book could be used as an introduction to graphic novels and a research project on a famous American where students then create their own graphic novel about their famous American.

Interesting, if someone stereotypical, gene-splicing Sci Fi premise. I decided to read this books since I've seen them in the hands of a lot of middle school students. While I think this version of the story is a bit lacking in meat for me, I plan to read more in the series, as well as the novel for the Panels Read Harder Challenge 2016. I am curious to see how the story develops and to understand why students find the narrative so gripping. ( )

Although the manga started off really cheesy in how they introduced the characters, the artwork is amazing and the story line is spectacular. The characters are well developed and there is a good bit of suspense throughout the book. I cannot wait to get the next one from my library. ( )

(From Amazon, ISBN 0759529515, http://www.amazon.com/Maximum-Ride-Ma...)

Fourteen year- old Maximum Ride knows what it's like to soar above the world. She and the members of her "flock"- Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, and Angel- are just 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. Now it's up to Max to organize a rescue, but will help come in time?
