This theme is shown through Kevin, as he is tiny for his age, and has a physical disability, but is extremely intelligent. The author portrays this theme on page 54 by having Max say, “‘And anyhow it’s not fair how everybody always says ‘Poor Kevin’ just because he didn’t grow… You can ask him anything and he knows what it means.’” Max knows that even though Kevin is the size of a kindergartener, he is smart enough to be in college. 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”. But, they are wrong, just as Max knows.

Johnny is a member of the gang that is not wanted and cared for by his parents but musters to find a strong bond with the gang and him.

For example, when Lethem admits his “howling confession” and states that “no high-lit reference is going to bail me out here”, the reader immediately feels the emotion in this experience for him. Even the theater in which he saw “Star Wars” is sentimental to him, being the first movie he had ever seen in that theater, as well as the only theater he has ever seen it in.

Throughout the story, the readers begin to realize that love is sometimes just an ideal depending on the character. For example, Baby states that “whatever it is, it’s so far from love, it was easy for me to understand why Alphonse never got jealous when I was with a trick” (O’Neill, 253).

Although it does not state why he became a pimp, it is clear that he became one due to the lack of love he received. He also turns to drugs to cope with the non-existent love in his life.
