I never had a brain until Freak came along and let me borrow his own for a while.
This is an ornithopter. An ornithopter is defined as an experimental device propelled by flapping wings.
Amazing perspective up here. This is what you see all the time.
Hey you! Mutt and Jeff! Frankenstein and Igor! Don't look around, I'm talking to you, boneheads. What is this, a Freak show?
What do I do?

Shut up Loretta!
Uh... Sorry wrong number.
The midget or dwarf or whatever he is. He must be Gwen's kid, you remember Gwen? Stuck-up Gwen?
We found your purse!
Freak moved into town the summer of eighth grade. Max was large but was mentally challenged, and Freak was the opposite. Freak was absolutely tiny, but he was extremely intelligent.
Just a second, Sugar, let me get this flashlight.
I saw you kill her! I saw you kill Mom! I never forgot, not ever! I know you did it! I know!
Freak and Max begin to become better friends, and Max even lets Freak get on his shoulders to see the fireworks, but Tony D, a gang member attacks them! They had no choice but to run into the pond. Max was the legs and Kevin was the guide and the brain. This is the day they become FTM.
Easy! Take it easy, kid, you're okay!
Freak the Mighty! Freak the Mighty strikes again!
Freak and Max return Loretta's purse that Tony D's gang had stolen, but Iggy and Loretta force them to stay, that is, until they find out that Max is Killer Kane's son. They don't want to be in trouble with that man of all people, after all. It also reveals what kind of people they are.
Max's dad gets out of jail, and kidnaps Max! He brings him to Iggy and Loretta's house and has him up. Max's dad is going to go far away soon... With Max. A plot twist happens, and Loretta attempts to save him, but Max's dad strangles her, but Max tells him that he remembers him killing his mother, and he freezes. Loretta proves herself to be a better person. But then...
You ignorant creature. I'll teach you to lay hands on my son.
Freak comes in and temporarily stuns Killer Kane by spraying him in the eyes with curry powder, soap, and vinegar. They end up escaping where they find Iggy and the cops waiting on the roof. They were saved! They lived happily ever after, or so they thought...
It ends with Max's dad going away for a long time and almost everything going back to normal, but Freak dies. This takes quite a toll on Max, especially because he thought that Freak was going to get a new body, and he struggles to comprehend that his best friend had passed. Freak tells him to write a book and he "writes the book" that you've been reading.
