Friendship life

Westin Perry 6/7

Analysis of the Development of the Theme

In Freak the mighty the friendship and characterization between Max and Freak interact with the theme. Their friendship helped them develop their personalities. In the story, Max feels really dumb until he and freak become friends. It states."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." This also interacts with the conflict because Max would've died from his dad if it weren't for Freak, who saved him. All of these elements develop the theme that friendship can help you through life.

Reflection and Application of Theme

I agree with the theme and I agree that the author developed the theme well. I agree because Freak and Max's friendship helped them through their hard times. If it weren't for Freak, Max still wouldn't know how to read or write. Because of Freaks disability if was hard for him to walk but Max carried him on his shoulders and helped him get through life.
