Summary

Maniac Magee Chapter 10 Summary Page 1

  • Maniac doesn't know he doesn't belong in the East End, and he recognizes some of the streets from when he met Amanda.
  • This time is a little different though—it's a Saturday, and there are kids everywhere. One in particular takes particular notice of Maniac.
  • Maniac Magee, meet Mars Bar Thompson.
  • Mars Bar's got a candy bar hanging out of his mouth and offers (a.k.a. challenges) Maniac to take a bite. Maniac figures why not, and takes a bite.
  • Right over Mars' teeth marks.
  • Now Mars is confused. And a confused Mars is a mad Mars.
  • Before Maniac realizes it, he's in a confrontation. At the center of it all is the book he's bringing back to Amanda.
  • One ripped out page later, a neighborhood lady breaks up the fight and sends Maniac back to where he belongs.
