Love it! Recommended for adolescent boys of any reading level, and girls too. This was a favorite read-aloud, and for a while, I had the first couple pages memorized. ("I never had a brain until Freak came along, and that's the truth. The whole truth. The unvanquished truth is how Freak would say it, and for a long time it was him who did the talking." Or something like that.)
