Take a moment to read this discussion question, and post your thoughts and comments below. Let us know what you think of the book and the characters.

Each of the six children in the Flock possesses a supernatural skill. How do these skills work together to make the Flock stronger? How does each child’s strength contribute to the Flock? What similar characteristics do all six children possess?

Lets Start the Ride

We are about two weeks into our Maximum Read program, and by now you should be getting to know and love the characters. Just for fun, I have listed a poll on the right to keep track of who our favorite characters are!

The first discussion question that I am posting comes from the curriculum guide that you can find on the AC New Library Webpage.

When Angel is taken, the Flock is devastated because they know she has been taken back to the School for more tests and experimentation. What options do they have for rescuing her? Why are they willing to put themselves in harm’s way to save her?

Think about this, and post your comments below. Also, feel free to post any other comments or thoughts about the book and the reading program as well.
