WELL...the plot is that there are six children that were taken or given up by their parents to a secret lab called the School. There, the mad scientists preformed experiments to try and combine DNA to create a new species. Only two were successful: the Erasers (part human, part wolf) and the bird kids (or Avian Americans, as they call themselves), which are children who are 2% bird and have wings and such. The six escaped with the help of Jeb, a traitor to the School, who raised them in a hidden place (Colorado, I believe) teaching them to fly and such. Jeb disappeared and was believed to be dead, so, at a young age, Max takes charge. The Erasers find them, kidnaps Angel, and the Flock as they call themselves go to rescue her. That's Book One, or as far as I'll tell you. It's Max's destiny, as learned later on, to save the world.
The Flock consists of Max(14), Fang(14), Iggy(14),Nudge (11?), Gazzy (11?), and Angel (6).
