A question I have been asked is, “What part of Maniac Magee moved you the most?”
Here is my reply.
The part of Maniac Magee that moved me the most is his worries, how MM (Maniac Magee) was sad and departed from the Beales, because he thought the Beales had to pay for every thing he does, and how he was able to stay strong and provide food and shelter for himself. It made me think about his feelings, how would it feel to always have a solo show, to have to find edible food every night. To be maybe expecting death each day. That is the part that moved me most.
