Freak the Mighty by Rodman Philbrick
First line: I never had a brain until Freak came along and let me borrow his for a while, and that’s the truth, the whole truth.
Summary: “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. (summary from back of book)
Thoughts: This is a story about the unlikely friendship about two people who use their characteristics to form a great team. Big brains+big body= Freak The Mighty. This book is kinda sad though, so be ready. Also, you might as well read it because if Covid-19 allows schools to re-open, you are going to be required to read this book anyway. So if you choose to read it, you’ll be ahead of the game
