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.

I listened to maniac Magee and it is about a white boy who lives in a segregated city and doesn’t care if he is white or black. He lives in a black home and is allergic to pizza. Finally he is told to go to the white side of the city and becomes famous there. He unties the cobles knot and is almost the most famous person in the city.

Listened to this audiobook with four boys on a roadtrip. They were all spellbound. It was a great story, really captured their interest. Quite a lot of humour in the book even though it was mainly a drama. It was greatly enjoyed by all of us.
