Maximum Ride: Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports by James Patterson
This is the third book in a series about Max and her flock, a group of kids genetically engineered to be half human, half bird. It was a bit tough to follow without having read the first two, as it's apparent that lots of convoluted stuff has happened to them as they get out of the lab where they were "born" and experimented on, and it's unclear what's been real and what's been psychological experiments to see how they react to pressure. A NAY because of that and the fact that it's not great literature; however, Max is a funny, snarky narrator and the action is fast and furious. I would absolutely recommend the series to action/adventure buffs.
