Brandy, China Anne McClain, Chandler Riggs, Zac Efron, Nicole Kidman, Kristen Dunst, Hutch Dano and Brianna Brown.



Max and the Flock must take Fang to the hospital after he is seriously injured in a battle against Erasers. There, they meet a seemingly kindly lady named Anne Walker who offers for the Flock to stay at her house. The Flock eventually agrees. There, they and Total, whose talking abilities are revealed, enjoy the huge house and large backyard in the countryside. But, as Max expected, everything doesn't stay perfect. Anne decides that the Flock should go to school, and off they go. School goes okay, but not exactly well. Angel reads her teacher's mind to answer questions, Iggy and Gazzy cause trouble (by blowing up bombs), and Max is furious when Fang kisses a red-haired girl. After the school experience, where Max actually goes on a date with a guy, and Anne asks to adopt them. Iggy finds his real parents, and leaves the Flock. To make matters worse, one day the school is taken over by Erasers, and Max and the gang actually learn that the school principal might have been in on this plot the whole time. Even the kids seem Eraser-ish. They then learn that Anne knows Jeb Batchelder, and the Flock escapes, leaving the home that they almost had. Iggy returns, saying that his parents just wanted to make money off him. Later, they search for a place where there might be information on their parents. After many mini-adventures, including the building and stealing of a car, Max is kidnapped and replaced in the flock with Max II, a Maximum Ride duplicate. Ending the book, Max II takes the rest of the Flock to find the information on their parents while leading them into a trap; Max escapes and battles Max II and instead of killing her, which is what Jeb and the other white coats wanted, she leaves her. In this book, Max discovers that Ari is alive, after she seemingly killed him in the last movie.
