The story of Jeffrey Lionel Magee, aka Maniac, has become a school standard since it’s publication in 1990. Jerry Spinelli, the author of this Newbery Medal Winner, is also the author of other children’s classics like “Wringer,” “Stargirl,” and “Milkweed.”
At the age of three, Jeffrey Magee loses both of his parents in a tragic accident. Now an orphan, he is sent off to live with his aunt and uncle. Sadly, their home is not a happy one and Jeffrey is surrounded by hatred. So one day he decides to run away. And he keeps on running. Maniac becomes a legend, but not just because of the people he meets and the feats he accomplished during his journey. Maniac’s incredible story helps bridge the gap between the poor and the racially divided. What starts out as a boy running away from home turns into an epic tale of learning and discovery, filled with many thought provoking questions about society.
With its evocative and timeless themes, Maniac Magee is recommended for junior high and high school level readers. This title is perfect for reading programs and classrooms.
