This is a book that I have been wanting to read all year because I have heard so much about it. I didn’t have a copy, and neither did our library. I finally found it at a thrift store (I love to shop for books at these places!!). 🙂
It was just as good as everyone has talked about. It touches your heart (and makes you cry). I have found that these kinds of books are becoming my favorite with young adult/6th grade books.
Freak the Mighty-by Rodman Philbrick
There is also another book by this author-Max the Mighty-which is about one of the characters from Freak the Mighty. Gotta get it now! 🙂
