Freak the Mighty
by Rodman Philbrick
I never had a brain until Freak came along. . . .
That's what Max thought. All his life he'd been called stupid. Dumb. Slow. It didn't help that his body seemed to be growing faster than his mind. It didn't help that people were afraid of him. So Max learned how to be alone. At least until Freak came along.
Freak was weird, too. He had a little body--and a really big brain. Together Max and Freak were unstoppable. Together, they were Freak the Mighty.
