Freak the Mighty

Freak the Mighty is about two kids that highly contrast each other. Maxwell, a very large and slow kid who earned the nickname Mighty and Kevin, who is phenomenally smart but handicapped. The two boys both have their trials of adversity and would have to face them alone. They were shunned because how different they are. When they finally meet, the boys form a tight relationship. Now with the brains doing all the thinking and the brawn doing all the fighting off bullies, the two can accomplish anything they could ever think of.

The two go on through life as a singular person that they call "Freak the Mighty". They have no choice not to. When they are apart, they fall to pieces. Anyway, as the boys take on every challenge, they face a a problem no one can prevent. Kevin is going to die soon. Kevin never tells Maxwell because he wants to protect his best friend. When Maxwell finds out that he's going to die, he does everything he can to see Kevin one last time.
