Freak the Mighty, Paperback Book


Extraordinarily powerful, uplifting and memorable, the story of "Freak the Mighty" explores an unlikely friendship, and finds optimism and humour in a story of great poignancy.

Bring your tissues. Maxwell Kane is feared and bullied because of his mental slowness and enormous size.

But this is not the only cross he has to bear; Maxwell's father is in jail for murdering his mother.

Kevin is smart, quirky and funny with insatiable curiosity and zest for life but he suffers from a rare genetic condition, which inhibits the growth of his body.

Yet the combination of Kevin and Maxwell is formidable, when together they become Freak the Mighty.
