From the bestselling author James Patterson comes the stunning, breathtaking start to the blockbuster series! Six unforgettable kids—with no families, no homes—are running for their lives. Max Ride and her best friends have the ability to fly. And that's just the beginning of their amazing powers. But they don't know where they come from, who's hunting them, why they are different from all other humans... and if they're meant to save mankind—or destroy it.

Sarah's Review:

This is a humorous, action-filled, adventurous, dramatic, super geeky, not-that-lovey book. Its a lot of things, and its definitely the type of book that I love reading. But make no mistake, I was still disappointed by this book. 

I hate to say this but this reminds me a lot of Percy Jackson... maybe I'll do a COMPARE someday. They have a "crew" of kids on a mission. They are both action-filled and have characters who both have humorous voices. They both have special powers. And a little "twist" at the end.

The point of view is from a GIRL named Max. I have to say, I did enjoy the sarcastic remarks but then I soon found them kind of... redundant. They still made me laugh but I soon found myself to guess what the next joke was going to be. Its still a very enjoyable book though!

Somehow, this book got me bored. If I start reading a Percy Jackson book, I will sit down for HOURS and just read until later when I try to stand up and my entire body is asleep with only my hands and eyes moving. This book made me set it down a lot. It just wasn't as action-filled as I had hoped it to be. 

All those romance people out there~, you shall be disappointed. There was I think only one scene where its a tiny hug or so?

This book (in my opinion) has some extra stories that are not needed. This book just kind of jumps around randomly and has too many false ideas.

Overall, I did enjoy this book and was excited about it but soon became a bit "tired" of it. I still like it a lot though!
