Maniac Magee Literature Guide
by Jerry Spinelli


This Newbery Medal winner tells the mythical tale of a legendary hero: 12-year-old Jeffrey Magee - known as Maniac Magee. An orphan with no place to call home, Maniac Magee enters Two Mills, a town sharply divided by race. Magee's athletic skills, combined with his nonjudgmental way, lead the people of Two Mills to overcome segregation, racial profiling, and ignorance.
