Title
Project 17
Review
With lovable characters, intertwining plotlines, and vivid detail that just give you the creeps, I would suggest this book to anyone who likes a story of teens sneaking into a long abandoned mental asylum, which plans to be wrecked in less than a week.   "Check it Out"

School's out Forever (Maximum Ride book 2)
Review
I was quite impressed with this second book from the series! It keeps you on the edge of your seat, and has some twist surprises along the way! What I noticed is that, unlike the first book, it had a few mild curse words in it..
Other than that, highly recommended!  "Check it Out"
