Maniac’s life in the story was pretty good at first but though the story it gets worst from my veiw. In the story Maniac or Jeffery Magee was a orphan at a young age. His parents had died to a crash. He went to live with his uncle and aunt. They didn’t like each other so one night Maniac ran away from them. He was seen by people though the book includung Amanda, Pickwells, and McNab.
His life still wasn’t good he always ran around but one day he was being chased by the “Cobras” and he ran all the way to the East End. The East End was were Blacks were. Once he was there he was approached by Mars Bars who was very rude. He would follow Maniac and yell “WERE YOU GOING!?” He was very mean. Mars Bars tried to steal a book that Amanda threw at Maniac when she was late for class. Mars Bars ripped a page out and then Amanda came. Mars Bars blamed Maniac but Amanda didn’t belive him and then Mars Bars went away. Maniac stayed with Amanda’s family and he stayed there along time. He then was told to leave by a man on a hot day. Amanda told him to try Cobble’s Knot. He did try he sat there for along time and Finally did it and he untied it. He walked in the middle of the street walking and left town.
