On 12/30/2015, Kidsmomo reader Marie asked us for book recommendations:
Freak the mighty
what is another book like this
A little about Freak the Mighty by Rodman Philbrick, from the publisher:
Two boys — a slow learner stuck in the body of a teenage giant and a tiny Einstein in leg braces — forge a unique friendship when they pair up to create one formidable human force.
When we saw your message, Marie, we immediately began thinking about it:
Here are some suggestions:
- Tangerine by Edward Bloor
- Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper
- Rules by Cynthia Lord
- Things Not Seen by Andrew Clements
- Bluish by Virginia Hamilton
- When Zachary Beaver Came to Town by Kimberly Willis Holt
If any readers (especially Marie!) decide to read any of these books, please leave us a review! And if you have a recommendation for Marie, definitely leave it in the comments!
