Welcome: Freak the Mighty
Description: This is a journey through one of the best young adult novels you will ever discover. We will meet the characters, one is a genius, but trapped in a twisted crippled body. And the other, Max, has lost both parents and feels like he is a burden to his grandparents, as well as a dummy with no brain. Both are bullied at school and need a hero to help. Experience the year they meet and become best friends who go on quests like the knights of the round table and become heroes on their own.
