Maniac Magee, By Jerry Spinelli

Maniac Magee is about a boy who loses his parents at a very young age and then runs away. During the experience of living on the streets Jeffery (Maniac Magee) meets many people that take him in and he always bonds with them. Every adventure he has even if it seems like it'll turn out badly he always makes it turn right side up.

This book has humor, adventure, and is full of surprises. I hope that you will read Maniac Magee and enjoy it as much as I did!
