TIME PERIOD- AFTER THE CIVIL WAR, WHEN THE BLACKS AND WHITES WERE STILL SPLIT UP.
When Mr. and Mrs.Magee go out into town on the trolley, the drunk trolley driver jumped the trolley of the street and into a lake, killing all the people on the trolley. Jeffrey was sent to his Aunt and Uncle's house. Uncle Dan and Aunt Dot don't share anything but a house. Two toasters, two TV's, and if possible, two Jeffrey's!
One day a child named Jeffrey Lionel Magee is born into a life of torture
and a life unlike any other. When Jeffrey is only three years old, his parents
died in a trolley accident. So Jeffrey was sent off to live with Uncle Dan and
Aunt Dot. "Pretty soon there was two of everything in the house. Two
bathrooms. Two TVs. Two refrigerators. Two toasters. If it were
possible, they would have had two Jeffrey's. "
If Aunt Dot and Uncle Dan hated
each other so much, why
didn't they divorce?
about church. They are very serious Christians and they
think divorcing would make The Lord unhappy.
The reason is, Aunt Dot and Uncle Dan are very serious
In the story Maniac Magee, Jeffrey Lionel Magee is the main character or protaganist. He is called Maniac because he does ridiculous stuff. In the story Maniac meets Amanda Beale, a black girl who loaned Maniac a book because Maniac begged and begged and begged. One day, Amanda brings Maniac home to her family. Maniac meets Hester, Lester, Mrs.Beale, and Mr.Beale. Before Maniac gets to the Beale's house, he comes across Mars Bars, a bully. He also comes across Finsterwald''s house one day to find a kid screaming. He saved the kid and called him Arnold Jones. Finsterwald hates kids and there is a rumor that some kids don't come back alive. If we go into the future, into the time period where Maniac Magee untied Cobble's knot, we come across a new character, Mr.Cobble. When Maniac was on the loose, just after meeting Amanda, Maniac stole a football pass that was meant to go to "Hands Down." He was the star football player. Maniac, also hit a home run on a person who had to bring his birth certificate to prove that he was really how old he was. But Maniac struck him out repeatedly. He struck out John McNab. Let's go way way back to the past. When Maniac's parents died, he was shipped off to Aunt Dot and Uncle Dan. But he ran away from their house. Some nights, Maniac would go to down to the Perkins family to have dinner. Also, later in the story, Maniac met an old man named Grayson. Earl Grayson. Grayson made a huge impact on Maniac's life. Until. Grayson died. He went to a valley and met two kids, Russel and Piper. They were
running away to Mexico. But when Maniac got them to go back to Two Mills, it was at the McNab's house.
That is when Maniac met Mr.McNab.
Jeffrey Lionel Magee's parents die and is sent to live with his Aunt and Uncle. He leaves and runs away after a choral concert. He meets a girl named Amanda and she lends him a book. He goes all around town taking football passes and striking out the baseball star. For a while he lives with Amanda Beale but when he realizes they are getting bullied because of him, he leaves a house once again. After a while he meets a guy named Grayson. Maniac celebrates with hiim. 5 days after Christmas he is dead. Maniac is back on his own. He even ends up at the McxNab's house. Yes, the McNab's house. But he leaves. Once again he is back on his own. After a while he meets Mars Bars once again. Mars wants Maniac to come live with him too. Maniac says no. Then Amanda comes and drags Maniac back to 728 Sycamore Street, Maniac's home.
