Stuffed Animal Saturday [24]

Stuffed Animal Saturday is a meme that we post here at We Live and Breathe Books to showcase the book we're currently reading with one of our favorite stuffed animals and discuss our stuffed animal's opinion (well, it's really our opinion, but that's besides the point). We hope you enjoy our quirky feature as much as we enjoy writing it!

This Saturday, Luna (my husky) and I are reading Maximum Ride Forever, by James Patterson. Even though Luna is tiny she is fully caught up on this series and has even been reading it since like middle school and she isn't angry at all that there is ANOTHER BOOK OF THIS SERIES and that MAYBE just MAYBE THIS SERIES SHOULD HAVE ENDED LIKE 6 BOOKS AGO. Nope she's not angry at all and she will be reading this 9th book with a completely unhindered and unbiased point of view. Yep...anyway...

So far: Luna is really confused as to why this book is picking up at a weird place and not following a completely linear timeline. However, the flock seems to be navigating the post-apocalyptic world and Luna has been reminded /just a little/ as to why she liked this series so much in the first place. She's excited to keep reading and hopes that this book has a more satisfactory ending than what the last few books have provided.

Sneak peek: Luna and I are struggling a bit about what to share here because anything past the first few pages feels like a spoiler to anyone who has been caught up on this series. For this reason, Luna has chosen to share Max's introduction to Maximum Ride Forever.
Hey, you! 
This is important. What you’re holding in your hands is the only written record of the new history of the world. Don’t freak out—I know I’m making it sound like a textbook, and believe me, I hated school more than anyone. But this much I can promise: It’s not like any textbook you’ve read before. See, this chunk of pages tells the story of the apocalypse and all that came after—some pretty heavy stuff, for sure, and I don’t blame you for being nervous. We all know that history tends to repeat itself, though, so for your sake and the sake of the future, I hope you’ll read it… when you’re ready. 
Well, we're ready right now (Luna is a tad nervous though).
