Maniac Magee is a young adult book written by Jerry Spinelli. This book deals with a strange boy named Maniac Magee who starts off with a very crappy childhood. He runs away and tries to find a home, while making a legend of himself in the process. He then meets Amanda Beale, a young, sassy girl. She lends him a book and she finds him worming his way into the hearts of her family and herself, while dealing with racial problems in the urban streets.

A flim adaption aired in Nicklodeon in 2003, although it was lighter in comparsion with the book.
