Freak the Mighty

By Rodman Philbrick (3)

A tale of the most unusual friendship, manifested in a nine-foot high giant of supreme intelligence, and full of heart and warmth, only begins to adequately describe Rodman Philbrick’s Freak the Mighty. Narrated by the titular “Mighty”, Max stands out in a crowd, and it’s not just his domineering height that distinguishes this eighth grader. Max is the son of the notorious “Killer Kane”, and his likeness to his father, as well as Max’s difficulty with quick thinking, set him apart from the crowd. This all changes with the arrival of the feisty kid next door, Kevin, or as he’s known to Max, “Freak”. Freak’s tiny, two-foot high frame and deep intellect makes it difficult for him to connect with others as well. But when Max and Freak meet, a perfectly balanced friendship is soldered between them, and they become the formidable “Freak the Mighty”, setting out on quests, and brushing hands with danger. Philbrick’s novel begins with a unique concept, and he illustrates the strong relationship between the two kids with tangible details, exploring the complications of fitting in, but more importantly, the strength friendship builds within us.
