Oh, I love the Maximum Ride series (if ya' can't tell from my name!). I don't really read true story books... I enjoy almost any non-romance or very-little-romance fiction books.

It is! The main character is Max and she has to save the world with her Flock: Fang, Iggy, Gasman, Nudge, and Angel. They're all avian-hybrids (meaning the have bird DNA inside them). They lived at the School (a lab) since they were born until a Whitecoat (scientist) named Jeb stole them away. They live in a house in the mountains in Colorado for four years. Jeb dissaperaed after two years. At the beggining of the first book Max, Iggy, and Fang are all fourteen; Nudge is eleven; Gasman (Gazzy) is eight; and Angel is six. They all have special "abilities", or powers. They have to fight Erasers (wolf-like-hybrids) a whole lot during the first two books. In the third (and fourth I think) they fight Flyboys (robots). Um... That's about it... Unless ya' want more detail, but that might ruin the books...
