Maniac Magee Chapter 32 Summary

  • Grayson and Maniac have settled into a nice routine: Grayson gets up first, turns on the heater, preps breakfast, and then wakes up Maniac.
  • When that doesn't happen on December 30th, Maniac goes to wake up Grayson and immediately knows something is wrong.
  • Maniac doesn't go running for help like so many kids would. Instead, he sits with Grayson, reading and talking.
  • Grayson's funeral is just Maniac and some disrespectful gravediggers. Sound like a little too much to take? Well, it is.
  • So Maniac does what Maniac always does: he takes off running.
