Abused, exploited widdle waifs against the entire world.
on March 19, 2015
Though it is gorgeously and lushly illustrated in faux American-style "manga" format, this fantasy marketed at pubescent kids is still as cheesy as Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.
Just like the overly perfect child stars of Disney Channel and today's kids pressured into overachievement, a group of precocious human "angels" are bred to maybe save the world and then treated (and mishandled) like lab animals. So the winged kids escape to fend for themselves in the glittering Big Apple, where they uh, enjoy fine dining, shopping for fashionable threads, and visiting a giant toy store - before fleeing for life from a whole army of "Men In Black" and shape-shifting Twilight werewolves.
Only 14, but looking and acting more like a harried 34-year-old soccer mom (and small wonder, too!), heroic young Max leads (shepherds?) the little troop of bioengineered baby superheroes that consists of two lanky "bad boys", a little black Lolita with puffy, pouting pink lips, and a couple of vomitingly cutie-pie little toddlers with gigantic, starkly-staring eyeballs that resemble bullseye targets (seriously, manipulative little Angel looks like she would be pawing Max's chest for food at any time!)
Naturally, the tiny band of innocent, wide-eyed little orphans would be pitted against the whole globe of selfish grown-up evildoers like in almost all "young adult" books that don't involve kissy-kissing with a new "hottie" at the school. :P
