Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment
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

Okay this is my 2nd graphic novel or manga, and I enjoyed this one as much as the first. Still have no idea what the difference is between graphic novels & manga, but really I don’t need to know :) I just know I like it and my son loves reading them. It gives us another way to connect, and he loves that I’m reading something that he read.
I have a lot of questions that still need answering about the flock’s gifts, the voice, the erasers, and much more. Again, I find it much more difficult to review these because it is much more concise, and I do not want to give anything away. I still love Max’s character and Fang is pretty cool too. Angel seems odd and sort of like a spoiled brat, so I’m not sure what is going on with her, and it seems Max is just as confused by her behavior. Ari is a jerk but also a puzzle as well as his father. They meet some new friends and learn new things about themselves.
I’m definitely going to continue the manga series, and I will look into getting the novels to read in the future as well. Then I can compare and contrast :)
I recommend graphic novels/manga for all your reluctant readers and your kids who are very visual. I also think they are a great break in between books or filler when you don’t have time to read a full novel.
