Just a Theory, A Book Theory

Freak the Mighty is a great book! It is one of the best books I have ever read. It caught my interest from the beginning and held it throughout the book. I liked Freaks jokes and his imagination. I also liked the friendship that Freak and Max had. I can relate to both Max and Freak's disabilities and their struggles because of them. Also how they overcame their disabilities together. The ending of the book made me very sad and angry although it made sense that it ended that way.

Thanks for reading!
