Book Review: Freak the Mighty
I first heard of this book after I watched the movie The Mighty at a church camp several years ago. Both the book and the movie are excellent. It's the story of two boys, Max and "Freak," who form an unlikely friendship. The book is aimed at grade schoolers (and if you're looking for materials for that age group, it teaches some great lessons, like the power of friendship and believing in yourself), and it made an impact on me then just as it does now. Read it, and if you get the chance, watch the movie, too. It's worth it!
