Crash was the football star of the school, who broke the record for touchdowns in one game He also was a a great track runner Penn Webb was a boy who had a small house and not much money, he also was a vegitarian. The main character is named Jon Coogan But is called crash for short Some of Jerry Spinelli's Books Maniac Magee Crash The Library Card Loser Wringer And his autobiography, Knots In My Yo-Yo String. Jerry Spinelli used his own life experences for his books. For exemple, in his book Loser, Zinkoff needs to get surgery on his stomach and needs to miss school for three weeks Facts About Jerry Spinneli Jerry Spinelli grew up in Norristown, PA. Jerry was a sports fanatic in grade school. When he was younger, his room was closest to a train track. When trains went by he was afraid of them.
