The funny thing about facing imminent death is that it really snaps everything else into perspective.  Take right now, for instance. 
Run!  Come on, run!  You know you can do it.
I gulped deep lungfuls of air.  My brain was on hyperdrive; I was racing for my life.  My one goal was to escape.  Nothing else mattered.

Mass Market Paperback, First Edition, 413 pages
Published May 1st 2006 by Warner Vision Books

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.

My Thoughts
This is a great beginning to what has turned out to be an interesting story.  I've enjoyed James Patterson's other books, and started reading this at the recommendation of my 14-year-old son.  It's one of his favorite series.


  1. Now i am definitely curious! Thanks for sharing...and here's mine: “EVERYWHERE THAT MARY WENT”

    1. I'm currently on book #4 and am enjoying the series. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. My daughter loved this book. I think she read all of them in a weekend. I've always meant to read them as well but just haven't. The excerpts are great! I'll have to go borrow her copy! Thanks for sharing!

    1. My son is the same. He's read them all a couple of times :)

  3. How great that your 14-year-old son enjoys reading! It's great that you're encouraging him by trying books he has recommended.
    I like the premise of this book and may give it a try myself.
    Here's the link to my Friday post: REMIX.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I'm so lucky that all four of my kids take after me in my love for reading (husband doesn't read - he says' he'll wait for the movie!)

  4. Is this a different theme for him? It seems like it is going into sci-fi.

    THANKS for sharing.
