Max by James Patterson

When millions of fish start dying off the coast of Hawaii and someone--or something--is destroying hundreds of ships, the government enlists the Flock to help them get to the bottom of the disaster before it is too late (from the publisher).
This is the fifth book in the Maximum Ride series about six genetically modified children - bird DNA has been mixed with their own to create lightweight flying combat soldiers. As you do. They face death on a daily basis as the baddies of the world try to get rid of them, while struggling with day to day life and dealing with the discovery of new talents - breathing under water, mind control, invisibility, and so on. The series is aimed at a young adult audience and the language in the text reflects that. There is also a strong environmental message throughout the books.
Rating - I give this 3.5/5 Not bad!

Get this from the library
