Freak the Mighty

Philbrick, Rodman

Maxwell Kane is feared and bullied because of his mental slowness and enormous size. But this is not the only cross he has to bear; Maxwell’s father is in jail for murdering his mother.

Kevin is smart, quirky and funny with insatiable curiosity and zest for life but he suffers a rare genetic condiction, which inhibits the growth of his body. Yet the combination of Kevin and Maxwell is formidable, when together they become Freak the Mighty.
