Staff Reviews

"Maniac Magee is about a boy that comes to a small town as an
orphan. He doesn’t know enough to know he’s on the wrong side of the
tracks, or even when he is being bullied- he’s seemingly an almost
perfect kid. I love just how indidividual he is, he’s almost alien in
this world like A Stranger In A Strange Land for children."

A Newbery Medal winning modern classic about a racially divided small town and a boy who runs.

Jeffrey Lionel "Maniac" Magee might have lived a normal life if a freak accident hadn't made him an orphan. After living with his unhappy and uptight aunt and uncle for eight years, he decides to run--and not just run away, but run. This is where the myth of Maniac Magee begins, as he changes the lives of a racially divided small town with his amazing and legendary feats.
