Storyline

Jeffrey "Maniac" Magee was orphaned as a baby, but nothing gets him down. He comes to a small town which, although divided by racism, is populated by colorful/comical characters. As he searches for his place in the world, Maniac changes the people around him, espcially the other children. With his amazing athletic abilities and good, almost unbelievable deeds, his name becomes legend and with this new status he will try to unite the town. Written by Max Vaughn

Pretty Good
8 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

I have read the book but didn't really understand it. I was thinking "This book would make a good movie". Now, it is. I think this movie is okay. But they forgot some things. Grayson is missing! Anyway, the movie is good.
