An affect that happened to me while reading the Cobras were beating up MM. I amagined the Cobras chasing him and MM was running for his life.
Maniac Magee had gotten adopted and his “new” parent hate each other but won’t divorce. They wont share or anything like that. MM was walking and asked thks girl named Amanda if she was running away. In fact MM was running away but Amanda wasn’t running away. This girl named Amanda was carn. ring a suit case full of books and thats what lead MM to think she was running away. Amanda said that she was actaully going to school. When she left MM started chasing her asking for a book to read so she stoped and threw one at him because the second bell rang. Later that day MM made 3 more appearances at that school that day and watched the varsity football team throw around.
