Maniac magee theme

When reading maniac magee I have concluded that the theme is to never lose hope.I know this because every time he runs at the end of 2/3 parts he stays around town and still returns still hopeing he can have a home.Also in one part he says “the maniac team is over” which means no one will ever take care of him ever again.

MM affect

When I read Maniac Magee,the part that affected me most is a tie beween when Grayson died and when MM meets Mcnab’s younger brothers.I was affected by the death of Grayson because I thought he was a staple charater and he would be in it till the end.I was also affected by when he meet the little Mcnabs because I thought Mcnab had no brothers,just mom and dad.
