This book is about some mutant kids who have these really cool powers that they earn unexpectedly from time to time during the book, but so far Max is the only one who earned a new power. Max can now fly at supersonic speed right now. That’s one of the powers that these kids have. The whole flock has wings. The way these kids got their wings was from science experiments. There were these lab guys that tried to make more of them by making them do tests for them. To the flock, it was torture and they escaped looking for their parents. A year goes by and they are still looking for their parents. Only they are living with an FBI agent right now and she got the flock into school. They try to get used to it, but some kids are teasing iggy and gazzy. Almost everyone has a new friend. I reccommend you to read this book because this book had me interested the whole time I started reading. This book is adventurous and action packed and I hope you read it.

    i was SO disappointed when i read this book, i was a die hard mamxium ridee fan up until the third book, when it was getting a little too complicated. then final warning came out, and i was really annoyed for a couple reasons. first, no action. second, the flock should not be in antarctica worrying about global warming. and lastly, there was nothing relating to the ongoing plotline of finding their parent. gr. i dont know if im even going to read the next one.

      Dear OBC,
      You have to read the next book. The series is amazing and trust me, there is lots of exciting scenes in the last few books. Definitely continue reading. “Enjoy the ride,” as Maximum would say.
