I read this book in grade school and it was one of the books that made me start reading on my own and not just feel like I had to. I would recommend this to any younger child to get them to start to love reading as well as to teach them about a variety of different issues.

A very interesting book for adolescents about issues such as race, competetion, and having no where to go. Maniac Magee teaches a whole town a lesson about understanding and looking withIN rather than only at the outside of a person.

MANIAC MAGEE is one of those unassuming, yet quietly powerful novels, despite its Newbery Award win and near canonization in modern children's literature. It's a seriously ageless novel, in that readers can always get something new out of it, no matter what age you are. When I read this book for the first time in elementary school, I enjoyed the realistic banter between the children, between the blacks and the whites. Now, as I reread it for my children's literature class, I am in awe of the way that Spinelli effortlessly weaves a moral tale into something entertaining and unique. His language is brilliance, stars and moon itself, and his characters are memorable and relatable. Even though I'm still not a fan of Maniac, with his improbable feats and passivity, this book is a must-read if you're looking for the best of the best in children's lit.

There are few writers of Spinelli's caliber for middle grades. He captures the essence of being a young boy struggling to be a young man. Every adolescent boy (and girls who want to better understand boys) should read this book.
