    freak

    They began to get anxious, and Laurie went off to find her, for no one knew what freak Jo might take into her head.

    I couldn't find what meaning they intended here for the word, freak.

    Not a teacher

    Maybe just "weird" in a creepier way?

    Re: freak

    When we use thefreedictionary.com to refer meaning of a word. If you drag down towards end of the page you would find 'reference in classic literature' section. There you can find lot of good examples which really helps in my opinion. I was looking for the meaning of freak in this website and I got this sentence in that section.
