Expert Answers

Freak and The Fair Gwen probably know just how lucky he is to have reached his 13th birthday. Kevin doesn't get his wish to take a "ride on the space shuttle," but he does get a new computer "with a modem." This will allow him to take his classes from home if he should be unable to attend school. To Max, it is a kind of shared celebration. Not only is it Kevin's birthday, but the the two boys' combined talents first emerged one year before: "Freak the Mighty" is one year old.
