To those whom are familiar w/ James Patterson's novel Maximum ride: How did the characters carry their backpacks?

Stupid question, but yeah /:. In the book it states that "they swung their backpacks onto their shoulders...". How is that possible? They are describe to have wings growing from their back to their shoulders. If there were packs on their shoulders (which even isn't possible) how can they fly? And it also states that they carry the packs during flight. Can someone explain this to me :(? If not, is there a way to contact the author? I know this is just one TINY thing, but I'm a skeptical person...

Well, they have to have slits in their shirts and jackets so their wings can get through---irrelevant, I know.

My guess is that the same thing goes for when they have their backpack on. If it's with two straps, the backpack would be on their back and the wings would slit through their shirts and between the straps just like their arms would. Their wings would flap out and their backpack would be in-between. It's difficult to explain, but kind of easy to picture.

Also, they could probably have those backpacks with one strap that go across the chest.

I hadn't given it much thought until your question. It's something to be addressed if the film ever gets made. Nice catch.
