This series has always been godawful bad, with the nonsensical make-things-up-as-I-go-along plot and all, but hoo boy does it get stupid here while attempting to deliver a message about climate change. Let me say that although I know this series is stupid, I still really enjoy reading it, and there are a few satisfying little moments involving the characters in this volume.

NaRae Lee's artwork looks great as usual. James Patterson really lucked out in hiring her for this, because I've seen way better and more popular book series get manga adaptions by far worse artists. NaRae Lee is crazy-efficient for churning out these rather thick volumes as quickly as she does, while still maintaining quality.

If you read the other volumes, you'll read this one too, and that's fine. Some of it was unintentionally comedic, like Max's global warming speech at the end -- which, to be fair, sounds like a speech that would be given by an uneducated 14-year-old. If you want to read an actually compelling argument (in graphic novel format) for taking action on climate change, check out "Climate Changed" by Philippe Squarzoni.

But James Patterson has yet to show he can write intelligent YA fiction, and his attempts to integrate environmental issues into such a dopey plot comes off as hamhanded at best. Just a heads up.
