Maximum Ride Series

  • (2 reviews)

    Maximum Ride is a young adult fantasy adventure series written by bestselling author James Patterson.

    The books follow fourteen-year-old Maximum “Max” Ride and her “family” - six kids of varying ages, known as the Flock.  Max and her gang of friends – Fang, Iggy, Nudge, the Gasman and Angel – are pretty normal in most ways, except one major thing - that they are 98% human, 2% bird. They grew up in a biotech lab called the School, where they were experimented on and made into human-avian hybrids.

    Now Max and the Flock are free, but that does not mean that life is simple. To start with, there are the Erasers, wolf-like creatures with a taste for flying humans. Then there are their missions to save their friends, find out more about their history, seek revenge and ultimately, save the world.

    James Patterson is one of the world’s top thriller authors and in this series, has turned his hand to books for teens. James Patterson’s YA fantasy novels have all the action and tension of his adult books but with plenty of humour and a coming of age story. Other James Patterson kids books include the highly popular Max Einstein and Middle School series. Patterson is a firm advocate for literacy and an extremely prolific writer, having sold over 325 million copies of his books worldwide.
     
    The Maximum Ride movie was also made in 2016 but there are currently no plans for a sequel with critics and fans alike rating the books more highly.
     
    We recommend these YA fantasy books for readers aged 12+. They are great for fans of Artemis Fowl, The Wizards of Once or Alex Rider and are packed with adventure and excitement.

    Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Deep End (Book 15)

    Diary of a Wimpy Kid is the series our readers read again and again. It's often the series which gets kids into reading because it's funny, easy to read, illustrated and you don't need to read the books in order. The paperback of The Deep End (book 15) is out now.
