Maniac Magee is a legend in Two Mills. He can run faster, kick farther, and untie knots better than anyone. But Maniac has no home. He's adopted for a while by a family, but leaves when his white presence in their all black neighborhood brings trouble to the family. His next home is with an old, minor league baseball player, but he is soon on the move again. There are so many stories about Maniac Magee, it's hard to separate the truth from the myth. Maniac Magee won the 1991 Newbery Medal and the 1993 Rebecca Caudill Award.
