Max’s house is a stunning E shaped house. The E is twisted on its side. The little lines on the E is held up by stilts out over a very sharp canyon. Max said she felt like she was floating in mid-air when she look out the windows of her house. They say that their house has windows everywhere from ceiling to floor. Their house was located on the edge of a canyon. This is an example of their house. It is an E on its side and It is on the edge of a canyon. http://www.hsd3.org/HighSch ool/Teachers/MATTIXS/Matti x%20homepage/studentwork/ Laura%20Cornelisse's%20Web% 20Page/Grand%20Canyon.htm
The nightmare that had begun started at the “School”. The school consisted of scientist poking and prodding at the children that were taken. The School where the Flock, Erasers, and others were created. The School is often connected with white coats. White coats are the people who are like doctors but who are much more evil. The children who the school has aren’t always given they are mostly taken.

Maximum is a fourteen year old who doesn’t have any parents or “real” family. Max and her “family” are science experiments. They were children combined with birds, which made them have wings. Max (which is her nickname) is a very brave girl who doesn’t let her emotions show. She has to be very strong for her “family” or it would crash. Maximum Ride is a very brave girl. An example would be like when she saw the erasers hurtling toward her house, she didn’t even stop to think about launching herself at an eraser to try and scare them away. Max is as very loving. She never wants to let her family or even friends get hurt. Max has long blonde hair. She is very tall and she has dark brown eyes. Link to picture
Iggy is the around the same age as max. Iggy is only his nick name, his real name is James Griffiths. While doing the experiment, the white coats (doctors) tried to enhance his eyesight. Iggy became permanently blind because of this. Even though he is blind he is not that far behind strength and toughness wise Max. When it comes to cooking, Iggy is the master and usually cooks very well. In this book, Iggy makes some breakfast the morning that the Erasers kidnapped Angel. Iggy is a minor character in this story. Iggy can be characterized as a protagonist. James Griffiths is a static character. He has never changed his personality in this book. Iggy has blonde hair and he is very tall and has blue eyes. http://www.fa npop.com/club s/jason-dolley- pj/images/3187 5498/title/jason -photo
Angel is always the most knowledgeable in the flock because she has mind reading powers. She is biologically related to Gazzy, but Angel is known as the 'baby sister' of the Flock, and similar to a daughter of Max. She is six years old and has curly blonde hair with pure white wings. Angel is very mature for her age. She is very observant and smart for a six year old, and is unexpectedly dangerous because of her cleverness and powerful abilities. Angel is a major character in this book. She is a major character because she is the reason the flock is going back to the school. Angel is the protagonist in this book. She has never done anything in this book that has made us think that is the antagonist. She is a static and a major character in this book. The whole book is focused on saving her. link to website where I got the picture
You may be asking “but what are the erasers”? They’re half-man, half-wolves. They are armed and blood thirsty mutants. Erasers are non-forgiving, non- sentimental creatures. They don’t feel any sorrow for anything they do, even if its wrong. They look like weird humans at first, but can transform into something like werewolves when ever they want. Erasers are customized often and eventually, the Erasers are given wings. A flaw in the way they are created makes them have only a short amount of time to live. Erasers could be characterized as static characters. They have always been evil and always will be. Erasers are an antagonist is this book. They have been trying to kill maximum and her flock throughout the story. These creatures are very major characters. http://rickischultz.wor dpress.com/2009/08/2 2/summer-09-review- part-iv-welcomed-to- harrisonburg-by-a- little-boy-bearded- teenage-clerk /
Jeb is the person who rescued Max and her family from the School and after a while he became a father-like figure to them. Jeb did everything a father would do. He taught them how to fight, fly and other things that would help them in their non-normal lives. He later (two years before the current setting) disappears and makes the family think that he is dead. Angel later finds out when she is captured that Jeb is not really dead, but in fact a double agent, working with the white coats that he had once betrayed. Jeb is an antagonist in this story. He is a dynamic character because he changes from being evil to the flock to being a father figure to them and lastly evil. Jeb is a minor character in this book. "Justin Gordon." Justin Gordon.

The climax is on page 205. Max said that she had two choices, one to give in and let the white coats win, or to fight with all she had. She chose the second one because she wanted to be free. She was fighting for the family. She fought with all her heart and won. The whole family was finally free from the white coats.
1. Man vs. man One of the main problems in our story was when Max, Fang, and Nudge were going to save Angel from the Erasers, she saw a girl named ella being bullied by a group of boys, and swooped down to help her. They started to fight and Max told Ella to run. She did. When Max won the fight she started to run away back into the forest. As she was running into the forest she heard people coming after her. She started to run faster and faster, but then she heard a loud “BOOM!”. Falling to the ground she noticed she had gotten shot. She got shot in her shoulder by her wing. She went back to Ella’s house, and Ella and her mom took care of her. C
Man vs. Society When Max finally got back to the flock on the mountain they decided to go find some food. They went to a restaurant and most of the people left. Next a lot of people walked in, and Max said that they looked like a lot of male models. She was scared. She gave a sign to the rest of the flock to jump out of the emergency door on three. So they did. They high jacked a car and the erasers caught up to them and captured all of them except two. They didn’t catch Iggy and the Gasman. They flew away before they could catch them. C
Man vs. Self This happens when Jeb wants to come back to be with the family again but he can’t. He can’t because he works with the erasers. He’s a white coat. C
Theme: The theme of this story is that family comes first. If a family member is in trouble, make sure you do whatever it takes to help them out.
