This is very basic to the story.  Max and Kevin (Freak) are best friends (although that was not always the case) that are by all accounts opposites of one another.  Max is the central character and suffers from incredibly poor self image due to his difficulties and school and the fact that his father is a convicted murderer.  Freak has physical difficulties which is how he earned his nickname (not a very nice depiction by the author but it is still realistic.) There is much more to say about Max, but my stating that here would really invade the storyline.
