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

Ehhhh... well it was a good idea...
8 February 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I read this book in the 6th grade and thought that this would be as good as the book. Unfortunatly, the left out a lot. Now, creating the book in an hour and a half timeslot is hard. But, they could have mentiod his alergy to pizza. Some of the things they were missing are 1: Greyson. WHERE WAS HE. He was the glimmer of light for Maniac after he ran away from the Beale's home. 2: His aunt and uncle who were mean to him. They didn't love each other and were 'very Catholic' so they didn't get divorced. This stuff irritates me the most, but it was a challange recreating this book. I give this one and a half out of four stars. As far as adaptations go, it ain't no Lord of the Rings...
