Also, he knows that other people should never judge him on his looks, because on the inside he is so much more. Most people who meet Freak think he can not do anything because he is “disabled”.

Rites of passage are an essential brick in the house of Americana. There are certain things a boy must do to be a man, at least that’s what the sitcoms on Nick-at-Nite taught me when I was a kid.
