Maniac Magee theme

This week in class we finished reading the book Maniac Magee. This book had a lot of themes but one that stood out to me threw out the book is “all people are created equally”. This theme stood out to me becouse in the book there was a town. The town was split up onto two areas, the west side had white skins and the east had black skins. Maniac Magee was from the west side. When he ran away he went to the east side and found a friend named Mars Bar. Everyone new not to eat or drink from the opposite skin color. Maniac however ate the same snack bar that Mars Bar ate. Everyone thought Maniac Magee had done the unthinkable. Not only this but Maniac and Mars Bar became friends.
