Maniac Magee is a great book
My child had to read this for school. We as a family thought it would be good to listen to it together as he read along with the book. I am so glad we did. The story is about compassion for people no matter the
color or station in life. It is about love. One of the best books I have read.
Even my husband loved it. We were all in tears at the end of the book.
The narrator is the best. She did each voice perfectly. She was especially good with the children's voices.
I hope audible will ask Merkerson to read more children's books and I do believe she is gifted reader.
Even my son was taken aback by how well she read.

Excellent Middle School Story
If you could sum up Maniac Magee in three words, what would they be?
Life lessons abound
What other book might you compare Maniac Magee to and why?
Have you listened to any of S. Epatha Merkerson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It would make me cry because all Jeffery wants is a home and he is so close so many times only to lose it again and again.
