He wasn’t born with the name Maniac Magee. He came into this world named Jeffrey Lionel Magee, but when his parents died and his life changed, so did his name. And Maniac Magee became a legend. Even today kids talk about how fast he could run; about how he hit an inside-the-park “frog” homer; how no knot, no matter how snarled, would stay that way once he began to untie it. But the thing Maniac Magee is best known for is what he did for the kids from the East Side and those from the West Side.

    " It was an okay book, but I probably wouldn't have read it if my teacher hadn't made it a requirement to read. "

    " My first taste of my favorite author. The plot was genuine and it showed me everything unique that can go in a character. It's still on my shelf, almost falling apart from how many times it's been read and how old it is. The creases in the cover make it that much more special, don't you think? I don't know why, but his allergy to pizza has always stuck with me. Little things remind me of it, then I'll slink back home and read it over again. This book has a high replay value, and I love that about it. "

    " This is a book that young boys should read. It deals with racism and bullying along with Maniac McGee who is the main character. He is a legend but nobody knows anything about him! "
