School's Out-Forever

School's Out-Forever by James Patterson
Book two in the Maximum Ride series.
Summary: Fourteen-year-old Maximum Ride and the other members of the "Flock"--Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel--are just like ordinary kids--only they have wings and can fly. It seems like a dream come true--except that they're being hunted by half-human, half-wolf "Erasers" who can fly, too.
In Book 2 of the series, the Flock members are taken under the wing of an FBI agent and try to live "normal" lives by going to school, making friends--and continuing their relentless search for their parents. But the Erasers return, forcing the Flock to abandon their search and make their escape once again. The voice inside Max's head keeps telling her that it's up to her to save the world, but this is especially challenging to do when she is faced with her ultimate match: a newer and better version of herself, Maximum Ride II. Max's heart-stopping quest to investigate the mind-blowing mystery of her ultimate destiny continues in the scariest, strangest, and funniest James Patterson novel yet. (taken from Goodreads)
Romance:Max goes on a date, catches Fan kissing a girl, liking someone, a couple kisses.
Violence:Kidnapping, torture (kinda), injuries, threats, fighting, killing (also wanting to kill someone), yelling/arguments, mutating/abuse/testing cruelty upon humans and animals, bombs and big explosions.
Other:Mutants, talking dogs, manipulation, lying/hiding something, stealing.
Time Period:Modern.
My Thoughts: This book literally took the baton from book one, The Angel Experiment, and continued on in the race without stopping! I enjoyed it just about as much as I did the first book. I have literally fallen in love with these characters and wish that they could come to life. *sighs* And yet, sadly, they can't. So I will just have to visit them in this series again :D The plot was pretty good, definitely exciting and had several twists and turns. I didn't really have any problems with anything in it and I think it would be alright for reader 12-13+. I didn't realize that the language was so high, I know a good bit of it was words like cr*p and s*ck which some people do not consider cuss words. There were a couple bigger ones mixed in though. So not including the smaller (possibly not considered) cuss words it would probably be about a two or so. Guys and girls will enjoy it and I really don't think that this series has an age limit, as my dad has read a couple of them. (I think the first three?)
My Stars:
P.S. I'm sorry that the type is a little off in this post, it was messing up (grrrr) and I couldn't get it fixed. And I'm also sorry about the lack of reviews and how scattered they were last month. I'm going to do better this month!
