"In a few pages Scalia takes the readers into a realistic junior high environment that could be theirs. Hildy, Scotty, Harrison, Carmine are so real! Scalia treats them with the respect each deserves. The voice of the story and Hildy´s voice are loud and clear. Young adults of different reading levels will enjoy this book. Adults should read it too." Editor, Writer´s Digest.
Hildy, a 14 year old born with a congenital hip defect, narrates her 9th Grade experience in Vanderville Junior High. Since her mother´s death, her father has taken Hildy "on the road," to yet another town and yet another school where she is "always the new girl." At Vanderville Hildy meets Scotty Dwyer, a dwarf, and Harrison Jakove, the school doormat. The three misfits band together and become the FREAKs in an act of self defense against the WHEELS. In the end all their lives are changed forever. FREAKs is funny and sad. It will make you laugh and cry. It is a book that anyone who has ever gone to school will love and long remember.

It was truly a pleasure!” – Kate MacDoonald, 5th Grade Teacher, Jericho Elementary School, Centereach, NY

“My 11 year old son and I both read FREAKs. I couldn’t put it down. As I was reading it, I felt like I was right there with Harrison, Hildy and Scotty. I laughed a lot and as soon as they lit those candles, I knew things were going to get bad. My son too enjoyed the book. I’m getting ready to read it again with my 9 year old son, and then my mom wants to read it. Thanks for a great read! – Victoria and Thomas L, parent and student, Deer Park, NY
