It's for my English class. I read the Maximum Ride series and I'm doing my project on it. We were asked to include a review with our posters. Do you think this needs work?

“I made one of my famous snap decisions, the kind that everyone remembers later for being the stupidest dumb-butt thing they ever saw or else the miraculous saving of the day.” For Max and her family, life is always about being on the run – or rather, on the fly. Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Angel and the Gasman are your average American kids. They’re nice and smart and funny, but there’s one small difference between them and every other kid in the world: they all have wings, and a few extra superpowers. The Maximum Ride series by James Patterson tells the thrilling story of six winged kids on the run from mad scientists, while subtly tying in the importance of stopping global warming. If you like anticipatory, action packed adventures, Maximum Ride is an electrifying series that will have you at the edge of your seat from start to finish.

This is a lovely synopsis! Does your teacher want more of a synopsis or an analyzation of the work? Because it's a lovely little synopsis. ^^

Well, it isn't really the length that matters. Does your teacher want a review or a synopsis? This is an excellent summary of the book. However, if you want to review it, I would add a little more opinion. For example, what you thought of the different characters. Anyway, I wouldn't think it needs too much work. :)
