Maniac Magee Chapter 23 Summary

  • With 30 Butterscotch Krimpets, a shower, and some clean clothes, the next stage of Maniac's journey through Two Mills has officially begun.
  • Grayson's a little concerned that Maniac doesn't go to school and has no intention of starting, but Maniac doesn't budge and Grayson doesn't push it.
  • This discussion gives us the best reason so far as to why Maniac doesn't dig school.
  • Turns out that Maniac thinks of school as a "day" home that complements your nighttime one. "School. Home. No, he was not going to have one without the other" (23.21).
