I have just finished reading the book, Maniac Magee and I liked it. It showed me lots of things I never thought I would dream of. In this book there are lots of themes in it the one that stood out to me the most was friends are always there for you, I think this because Maniac Magge left his friend Amanda and when he returened she invited him (or rather told him) to live with her family again. I alsothink this because when Grayson died he still remembered him and took some of his favorit thing I think to show Grayson that he still rememberes and still cares.
The part that impacted me the most was when Grayson died because he was sweet and kind and he loved Maniac. I also think that it was hard for Maniac because he loved Grayson. All I could think when I read it was why did he have to die? He was one of the most impactual characters.
Maniac Mcgee was not a legend until he started running. Then he whent to East End and met Amanda. He lived with Amanda’s family for awile and made friends and enemys then he untied Coblers Knot and everyone through confetti.
