"Freak the Mighty" 20th Anniversary

This stand-up-and-cheer classic is an unforgettable book.  Max, a troubled and oversized boy and Kevin, a physically challenged genius, join forces after being bullied and together they are Freak the Mighty.  Written by Newbery Honor author Rodman Philbrick, Freak the Mighty is a simple, yet timeless story about friendship and overcoming hardships that many kids will relate to.
