“And that's when the running started. Three springy steps down from the risers -- girls in pastel dresses screaming, the music director lunging -- a leap from the stage, out the side door and into the starry, sweet, onion-grass-smelling night. Never again to return to the house of two toasters. Never again to return to school” (Spinelli 2).

Jeffrey's parents died in a high speed trolley crash when the train went over a bridge and crashed into the lake/river.
Jeffrey Lionel Magee
He screamed because he wanted his aunt and uncle to get along and he screamed "Talk! Talk, will ya!"(Spinelli 7).
Amanda Beale is the first person who speaks with Maniac Magee in Two Mills.
Two Mills is divided into the East end and West end by Hector Street. The West end is where the white people live and the East end is where the black people live, therefor the town is segregated.
4 sentences bare minimum to answer an essay question.
In Chapter 4 of Maniac Magee, Jeffrey runs through the highschool gym class in Two Mills. While running he interrupts a football practice, during gym class, where he intercepts a pass from the receiver Hands Down. After running the length of the field for a touch down, he punts the ball farther than the quarterback can throw the ball. And then "into the hands of the still stunned Hands Down". This shows us the amazing talents of young Maniac Magee.
The following quotes are evidence of the size of the Pickwell family "in ran the Pickwell kids, all ten of them" and "Baby Didi" which means there are eleven Pickwell Children.

Mar's Bars was insulting Jeffrey calling him a name comparing his skin tone to that of a fish's belly.
A lady from the east end broke them up with a broom and then told Jeffrey to leave.
