This shows up in Freak the Mighty in many ways, Freak used his life to make Max’s better, and Max was willing to do anything for Freak. An example of this theme really showed up on page 157 when it states, “‘Kevin knew from a very young age that he wasn’t going to live a very long life’…’So he was lying about getting a robot body?’” This shows the theme that a true friend puts you before himself because Freak chose to not tell Max about his soon death even though telling him would make him feel better. This means that Freak even though it would bring him comfort he chose to not tell Max about his inevitable young death.Additionally, more evidence of this shows up on page 77 when everyone was making fun of Max and he was just sitting there like a stick in the mud, but Freak stood up for Max even though it would be easier to stand by and save himself. This shows that Freak was willing to stand up for the bottom man. This means that Freak is a true friend to Max he, because he was at a fork in the road and he took the path less taken, the path of selflessness and support.

The two quotes are aligned because Percy never knew his father and now he does and in Hero’s Journey it says that a hero meets a dad who has life and death power. That is why I think those two quotes align together.
