Don’t count the days, make the days count. I believe that Maxwell is the hero of the book. I feel this way because he could have been a bully to freak, he stuck with Freak through thick and thin, and Mighty was there for Freak when they got into trouble. Firstly,having a disability is tough. Having a disability is even tougher when having to go through school. Many kids nowadays have the power of the the internet to go and be mean to other kids. I believe that Maxwell is the hero of the book because in my opinion Mighty made other kids treat Kevin the same way you would treat your friends. I know this because in the text it said “I am kicker again ready to blast anyone who dares to touch me” (Philbrick 155). I think that this quote is important because if Mighty is willing to protect himself then he is willing to protect his friends too. Secondly, knowing you have someone you can trust feels amazing. Knowing you have a friend willing to drop everything to come be at your side whenever you need them is the world’s biggest prize. Mighty was such an amazing friend when Freak was emidit to the hospital. Instead of pretending like he didn’t care, Mighty walked to the hospital and played with the mechanical bird until The Gwen of Air came to find him. This shows that he is a big soft guy on the inside and a tough guy on the outside. I know this because in the text it said “everyone needs something to hope for ” (Philbrick 157). Lastly, being alone is the worst feeling in the world. Being alone when something terrible happens is awful. When Tony.D was giving Freak a hard time, Maxwell was there to lend a helping hand. I know this because in the text it said ” Whew! That was a close encounter of the turd kind” (Philbrick 31). This is important because Freak is will to try and make Mighty laugh even when they just had a close encounter with the neighbourhood bully. In conclusion, Make your life a masterpiece, imagination no limitations on what you can do and what you can’t do. I believe that Mighty is the hero of the book. I believe this because he could have been a bully to freak, he stuck with Freak through thick and thin, and Mighty was there for Freak when they got into trouble. This is why i feel Mighty is the hero of the book.
