Freak the Mighty
Kevin and Max are both accustomed to ridicule: Kevin because he is small and disabled and Max because he is huge and perceived to be stupid. When fate throws this seemingly mismatched pair together the result is awesome: Freak the Mighty.
Kevin's razor-sharp wit and limitless imagination combined with Max's great strength and capacity for empathy take the pair on an exciting, symbiotic journey through the trials of life as an outsider.
This tragic, suspenseful and touching story is written with simplicity and humour, and while a tissue or two is mandatory, it is ultimately uplifting and leaves a serene sense of peace in its wake.
