Maniac Magee

By August 28, 2019Book Reviews, Kids Picks

Author: Jonathon Spinelli
Genre: Realistic Fiction
5th grade and up

“Maniac Magee is about a boy who is suddenly orphaned and his life turns upside down. He decides to run and try to survive on the open streets. He earned the name “maniac” by attempting crazy stunts. Even though he faced his own struggles, he always took the opportunity to help others, regardless of their race or what part of town they lived in. I recommend this book.”
