In MAXIMUM RIDE: SAVING THE WORLD AND OTHER EXTREME SPORTS, the time has arrived for Max and her winged "Flock" to face their ultimate enemy and discover their original purpose: to defeat the takeover of "Re-evolution", a sinister experiment to re-engineer a select population into a scientifically superior master race...and to terminate the rest. Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, and Angel have always worked together to defeat the forces working against them--but can they save the world when they are torn apart, living in hiding and captivity, halfway across the globe from one another?
This is the third book of the Maximum Ride series. It is 417 pages long, too.
Max and the Flock are on, yet another, adventure. Itex is a huge incorporation all around the world and it is also the people trying to destroy it.

He saved them from certain death and comforted Max when she learned of whom gave birth to her. With Ari around conflict engraves itself in the group and the flock splits. Fang and Max both take on the role of leadership to their mini groups. Max sets her priorities on finding the Itex Headquarters, while Fang begins saving the world through his blog. Max is in trouble and all of the stuff the flock has been through could have been a test! What is going on? Who is Max's parents?
I loved the twists in this book and the suspense. It truly surprised me. I can usually tell what is going to happen, because of the clues throughout the story, but I didn't think of this books twists. I love the romance that James Patterson has sewn into the pages. It's very strange, but refreshing. I love this book series so far! I can't help, but keep reading, because whenever I get into a good book series.... It's almost impossible to stop, unless the next book hasn't come out yet. This book series, so far, is for a wide variety of kids. There is mild cussing, like once in a while it says hell, but it's in the right context most of the time.
