|Angel needs your help!|
Joining a scientific expedition gives Max and the flock a perfect opportunity to distance themselves from the heated debate over their future, but frostbite isn't the only danger in the Antarctic! A powerful figure in the underworld has promised the super-human kids to the highest bidder—and he has the robotic army to ensure the goods are delivered!
The Flock begins their fight against global warming huddled with a flock of penguins. Gazzy is sliding down a hill with the penguins and Angel tells Max she wants a baby penguin, protesting that they are very cute and cuddly. Max kindly reminds her that penguins eat vomit, and that Angel would have to vomit to feed a baby penguin. She is less enthusiastic. Max is jealous because Fang seems attracted to Brigid.
Angel wanders off during an ice storm against Brigid's advice, and falls into a crevasse with the dogs and becomes trapped. Max and Fang try to rescue them, but the Flock is captured and taken to the Uber-Director. A hurricane destroys the building where they're being kept. Afterwards, Max gives a public speech about the dangers of global warming. The book ends with the Flock in Los Angeles, where a sniper is about to shoot Max.
