I would recommend the book to a colleague.I listened to be able to multi-task and be ready to discuss with students.
Freak the Mighty were my favorite characters!! The two outcasts complement each other.
Yes, it was.
It was good to hear a young woman's voice telling the story, obviously. I could visualize so much of the story. (I have not seen the movie.)
From chapter 11 on, all were memorable.
Cannot say I have a favorite. There were many intense chapters. Gus's pre-funeral was very intense.
The last four chapters moved me. Listened to them on a flight home and had to contain the tears. It was not easy.
I do not usually read teen books unless they are dystopian stories since my students love them. I did like listening to this story!!! It made the story more real for me and I was more focused and interested. I felt a different perspective by listening that I would not have felt had I read.
