Freak The Mighty by Rodman Philbrick is about two misfit boys who at first hate each other. The main character, Max, is practically a giant and is pretty destructive. People also call him dumb. Then Freak comes into his life. Freak is abnormally short, but a super genius. Together, they call themselves Freak the Mighty.
This story is very emotional, touching, and good for all genders. I loved it.
