Freak the Mighty
Freak the Mighty by Rodman Philbrick is probably the best book EVER! 😀 Okay sure this book has been out for more then a decade but it’s still SO good! I first read it in my 5th grade year, (I’m in 8th grade now) and I haven’t been able to stop reading it!
Freak the Mighty is about a boy named Max who is humongous, in 8th grade and a little less then smart if you ask me. He even says he has no brain. Like any other middle school students would do, they keep bothering him and taunting him about how dumb he is. But what keeps most kids away is the fact that his dad is the dreaded Killer Kane. Max’s dad, Killer Kane, killed Max’s mom when he was only an infant. The police took his dad to jail and he’s been living with his grandparents ever since. Then, one day, a boy named Kevin, or Freak, moves in across from where Max lives. Max and Kevin later become best friends and together become, Freak the Mighty! Pretty clever. 🙂
Like I was saying, this is a great book! It makes you want to laugh, shout, and cry all at the same time! And there’s so much suspense!! 🙂 However, I can’t give away any of the suspense or you might not want to read it. L I’ll just say an unexpected guest comes to Max’s house on Christmas Eve. 🙂 <— That smile can be a good thing, or a bad thing. Read Freak the Mighty and find out. 🙂 <— That’s a good one.
And if you liked that book, then you’ll really want to read Max the Mighty.
