    aubree "My favorite series is the Maximum Ride series. The books feature a 14 year-old girl Maximum (Max) and her family: Iggy (14), Fang (14), Angel (8), Nudge (11), and Gazzy (10). Angel and Gazzy are the only real siblings but the group sticks together as a family. The only catch is, the kids are human-avian hybrids stolen from their families. On the run from evil scientists and their own inner demons, the group fights for survival in this gripping and suspensful book series by James Patterson."
