This humorous yet poignant story tells of a super-athletic teenager who bridges his small town's racial gap. After his parents die, Jeffrey Lionel "Maniac" Magee's life becomes legendary -- he can outrun dogs, hit a home run easily, and tie a knot no one can undo. Maniac tries to find a home, soothes tensions between rival factions on the tough side of town, and becomes a true hero. Winner of the 1991 Newbery Medal.
