              I would so recommend this book. It is about Magee's life. He plays with the black kids and hes white. People think that is wrong. Magee has no parents and ran away from his aunt and uncle who couldn't share anything. To learn more about Magee's life read the book.

                      Introduction Have you been looking for a good book? Well I got one for you and the name of the book is Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli. The genre is fiction. In my personal opinion, this is one of my favorite books. I would rate it ten out of ten any day. It is a very exciting book to read. Body Paragraph The main character of the book is Maniac Magee and his Mom and Dad died in an accident. This takes place in California. He lives with his uncle, but he ran away in the middle of a school play. Now, he is on the run trying to find a home. After he becomes friends with a girl, he decides to live with her. After a while, he is on the run again and is living his life freely. This book is exciting to read because of the action taking place,like fights. This book is also one of my favorite books because it is one of the only ones that makes me excited to read it. A type of reader that would like this would be a reader who likes action in the book.
