Maximum Ride and her crew are back, trying to live some semblance of a normal life. The kids are in school and for a brief while, things are going well, until, once again, they are not. While Max is still mourning the loss of Angel, who is presumed dead, but may not actually be, she is also trying to sort out her feelings for Dylan and all the while, missing Fang. When Fang loses his new gang and is in mortal danger, he once again meets up with Max. Max's mission to save the world takes on new meaning and her existence may have to be the ultimate sacrifice.
