||After the mutant Erasers abduct the youngest member of their group, the "birdkids," who are the result of genetic experimentation, take off in pursuit and find themselves struggling to understand their own origins and purpose. James Patterson's explosive debut in the young adult market is guaranteed to create legions of new fans for this beloved, multimillion-selling author. Fang, Iggy, Nudge, the Gasman, Angel, and Maximum: Six kids who are pretty normal in most ways-except that they're 98% human, 2% bird. They grew up in cages, living like rats, but now they're free. Riding the wind, their wings are an amazing gift and yet, their world can morph into a nightmare in a single instant. For when the bloodthirsty Erasers-half men, half-wolves genetically engineered by sick and sinister scientists-kidnap little Angel, the Flock embarks on a rescue mission that will change them forever.
