Freak the Mighty Chapter 25 Summary
What Loretta Said
After Freak's death, Max hides in the basement, missing the funeral. His grandparents try to help him through it, but he just wants to mope by himself.
Then it's time for school to start again, and Max really doesn't want to go. But Grim won't have any of it; he says he is going, even if he has to drag him there.
Max hates every minute of school because everyone just looks so sorry for him. Even Tony D tries to be sympathetic.
But not to worry. Max yells back at him, and they go back to being enemies.
One day, Max runs into Loretta. She tells him that Gwen is out in California and has a new boyfriend.
She asks Max what he's doing these days, and he tells her exactly what you'd expect: nothing. She tells him, "Nothing is a drag, kid. Think about it" (25.16).
And the funny thing is, he does. Nothing his grandparents said could get through to him, but somehow Loretta Lee does.
So Max goes home and pulls out the empty book Freak gave him. He starts writing down the truth of his adventures with Freak.
And that's where we are: at the end of his writing.
And now that Max has written a book, he figures he might read a few, too.
