Freak the Mighty
W. R. Philbrick
Teen Fiction PHILBRI

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

"I started writing when I was about 12," Rodman Philbrick recalls. Now he is an award-winning author of more than 20 books for both adult and young adult readers. His widely acclaimed young adult novel, Freak the Mighty , was made into a movie, The Mighty . Before finding success as a writer, Philbrick, who is from Boston, worked as a carpenter, boat builder, and longshoreman. "I kept writing because that was the only thing I really wanted to do," he says. He and his wife, Lynn Harnett -- with whom he has collaborated on a number of novels for young readers -- divide their time between Maine and the Florida Keys.
