    Maniac Magee, by Jerry Spinelli was a great book. I love this book.His parents died of a trolley going off the track into the river.Also maniac is not his real name.It is Jeffrey.Jeffrey became an orphan after that he went to his Aunt and Uncle.Jeffry ran away though and went to Two Mills where black and white are separated. My favorite part of the book is the end of the book were he finally has a family !!!!!

      Maniac Magee, by Jerry Spinelli was great. He had a new home for like a few days. I liked the ending because It is a happy ending. And he likes running. it was kinda sad because his mom and dad died on a trolley.

          Maniac Magee by , Jerry Spinelli was a good book. I would recommend this to someone because it is a good book Maniac Magee is about a boy's parents who died in a high speed trolley accident the driver was drunk. Then Maniac Magee went to live with his Aunt Dot and Uncle Dan. When he went to a church he yelled amen his Aunt dot and Uncle Dan don't sit together when he saw them away from each other at the church Maniac Magee jumped of the stage and ran. I would recommend this to a friend because it is a good book I suggest you to read it!

            Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli was awesome. I personally think that the exaggeration in the book made it cool. I like the race issue in the book too because Maniac fixes it in the end of the book.I just love Maniac Magee if Jerry Spinelli wrote a Maniac Magee continued or a Maniac Magee 2 I would be the first person too buy it and read it and that's my review on Maniac Magee.
