At the beginning of eighth grade, learning disabled Max and his new friend Freak, whose birth defect has affected his body but not his brilliant mind, find that when they combine forces they make a powerful team. An established writer of adult suspense makes a stunning entry into children's literature with this extraordinary novel about two boys--a slow learner too large for his age, and a tiny, crippled genius--who pair up to create on formidable human force.

This tale of unlikely friendship is uplifting without being unbelievable or cheesy.

One of my all time favorite children's books, great for adults as well. Middle school is hard enough, but when you have a disability to boot, life gets pretty rough. Amazing story of how two such teenage boys combine their strengths to form a close friendship and challenge the bullies around them. Must read!

Really good book. As good as the movie. Highly recommend, for teens and up. I am a grandmother and I hope I can get my grandsons to read it. It does have a sad ending, but life is not all happy, happy, happy. Lots of learning happens.

this is a great read for all,
i love the two characters and the difference between them both and how they become one team, slaying dragons and walking high above the world.
this book is a great example of a really good friendship. if you like cliffhangers and page tuners this is the book for you!!

I liked Freak the Mighty because it was about one guy who's 8 Ft and Freak who's 2 Ft. The ending was sucky.
