An excellent adaption! Maximum Ride feels like it is an original manga, the story flows from panel to panel, and all the relevant information is gotten across. Each of the characters is given enough face time to show off their personalities, and by the end, the idea of their destiny is dangled before us. Max is a motherly girl, she wants to protect her family, and is willing to go into danger to save them. There are many questions surrounding this bunch, which will keep you reading.

This will be my third time reading the series. It's always awesome! Iggy is my favorite, or maybe Nudge is. However, it's pretty cool, try reading it!!!!! XD

This story is problematic for me; it's riddled with confusing or contrived elements in the plot and some cheesy moments. But it is a lot of fun and does keep you hanging on and wanting more. And this art for the graphic novel is SO BEAUTIFUL! Its almost more fun to look at than it is to read.... but the book isn't so bad, overall.

“I can talk to fish!" Angel said happily, water dripping off her long, skinny body. "Ask one over for dinner," Fang said, joining us.”

“They turned to Angel. "We will call you Little One," the leader said, obviously deciding to dispense with the whole confusing name thing.
"Okay," said Angel agreeably. "I'll call you Guy in a White Lab Coat." He frowned.
"That can be his Indian name," I suggested.”

Maximum Ride: School's Out--Forever begins with the Flock heading off to look for their parents using papers with a computerized code that they had obtained at the Institute for Higher Living. On the way, they run into flying Erasers (with deformed, patched-on wings), including Ari. After a fight with Ari, Fang suffers injuries serious enough to need medical treatment at a hospital. FBI agent Anne Walker and her colleagues question members of the Flock for information about the School and its experiments; in exchange, she offers her home for residence while Fang recovers, though he healed in only a few days. The Flock agrees, and eventually they are enrolled into a public school. While at the school, Max witnesses Fang kissing a girl named Lissa, nicknamed by Max the 'Red-Headed Wonder'. Shortly after, most likely out of jealousy, Max starts to go out with a boy named Sam. The principal of the school works for the Institute for the Higher Living and almost traps the Flock at the school. Once they return to their residence, Anne Walker reveals herself as the leader of the labs that created the Flock, and even offers to adopt them. Later, Max is kidnapped and replaced with a clone known as 'Max 2' that has the appearance but not the personality of the original Max. In the end, Max discovers that she had been set up to kill Max 2; however, Max cannot bring herself to destroy the other Max and escapes with the Flock after Gasman and Iggy set off a bomb.
