SCHOOL’S OUT – FOREVER (MAXIMUM RIDE)
Boston : Little, Brown, 2006
we had escaped from the lab where we had been raised and given wings and
various other assorted powers. Not only that, but we’d been hunted by Erasers
time after time, and managed to escape, although sometimes barely. Finally,
I had (by accident) killed the worst of the Erasers (mutant wolf-human
hybrids), their leader and the son of Jeb, the traitor. It was a mistake,
but Jeb’s last words to me as we escaped were; “You killed your own brother.”
Of course, knowing Jeb, we couldn’t tell if that was the truth or simply another of his lies meant to ‘test’ us/me which seemed to be his sole goal in life. Now, we were headed to D.C. to try to find the Institute which just might provide some answers that all of us were searching for. Like about our parents and who we should have been.
Then, we saw a weird dark cloud heading right towards us. Too fast for a storm cloud. “Flying Monkeys?” asked the Gasman. Worse, Fyling Erasers!
And even worse, one of them was Ari, back from the dead and with wings. Couldn’t anything ever be simple, just once?
