LC: Maniac Magee

In this course, you will read and learn about Maniac Magee who gains instant celebrity in the town of Two Mills, Pennsylvania. Jeffrey Lionel Magee is a 12-year-old homeless wanderer who can move like no one else the town has ever seen. He earns the name “Maniac” with such feats as intercepting a football on a field of players twice his size, hitting an inside-the-part homerun without a baseball, and winning race by running backward. As the legend of Maniac spreads, Jeffrey reluctantly takes on two challenges he can’t outrun: the strong racial divisions in Two Mills and his need for a loving family. His unconventional actions weaken the town’s barriers and he eventually finds the home he’s always needed.
