Maximum Ride books in order by James Patterson
You must read the Maximum series in order of publication, which equals to the chronological order. The reason for this is that there are some time skips in these novels (the main character, Max, is 15 in the first volume and ends up being 20 in the last book of the series), so you have to follow our recommendation to keep up with the events in the plot.

What is this story about?
This is the story of Maximum ride, known as Max, a 14-year-old girl who is able to fly. She, together with some of her friends who happen to have the same flying ability, will fly the skies and have a great time.
But joy never lasts forever. One of her friends, Angel, will be kidnapped, and they will have to get him back. What seemed to be a desperate mission will turn out to be even more complicated, because the kidnappers will send some wolf-humanoid creatures to capture them, no matter if dead or alive.
A bit about the movie
As we anticipated, there was a movie adaptation of the first volume in the series. The film was released in 2016, directed by Jay Martin, and was starred by Allie Marie Evans(who you may know for her role as Natalie on HBO’s Euphoria).
The film did not perform well at theatres, therefore, no sequels were filmed. But we’ll dedicate an entire post to this movie, because we love to talk about film adaptations. For instance, recently we talked about why the Dark Tower 2 movie was not going to be filmed, any guesses?
