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.

My son got so much out of this book. It was an assignment, but most of the kids in his class seemed to read it eagerly (my son is already a reader so it was no problem for him).
I highly recommend it.
I loved this book, and wanted it to go on and on. I have thought about it, and its vision of a better world, for the month since I finished it. Very well worth reading!
The dominant theme of the book seems to race relations. This book goes much much deeper. These deeper themes are developing honest relationship with others, being true to one's ownself, and the power of giving.
I cannot recommend this book strongly enough. It is a great book to read aloud to children . . . and to adults.
