Reflection and Application of Theme

I agree with the theme in this book because it can work in many different situations. Like if your having a hard time you can turn to your friends for help. Or when your confused then your friends can help you understand. This theme is relevant to our generation because, some people when there having a hard time then friends will help them and when your bored your friends will change that. Its just good to have friends. Kevin and Max for example were great friends they helped each other out with school and getting around. They went on adventures slayed dragons and saved Princesses. They never parted from each other they helped each other out when they were having a hard time with something. That's why we have friends, And that's why its a great theme.

Freak the Mighty

Kevin and Max met when Kevin moved in down the street. They used to go to day care together. Kevin had a disability he didn't have a very big body which kept him from doing a,lot of things but it didn't keep him from going on adventures with Max. They went on plenty of adventures together slaying dragons and saving damsels. Kevin's doctor told Kevin that he could get a new robot body and he believed it, his doctor thought he wouldn't stick with that forever but Kevin did. He was so obsessed with robots and fantasy he thought he could get a new body but he couldn't. Kevin was very smart and he carried a dictionary around with him. Max wasn't that smart so Kevin taught him how to read and write. He also taught him big words. They were very good friends.

Max and Kevin had many enemies. There was Tony-D, Iggy and Loretta, And especially Killer Kane. None of them were really a threat but Killer Kane. He kidnapped Max and brought him to an abandoned house that was burned down awhile back. He tied him up and left him. Loretta came to save him but Killer Kane came back and started to strangle her. But just then Kevin broke in through a small window. He had a squirt gun and it had a mixture of stuff that really stings your eyes it pretty much feels like acid is burning out your eyes. Anyways Kevin shoots it into Killer Kane's eyes. They start to run away and killer Kane chases them but when they get out side there were cops everywhere.
