Maniac Magee Freedom and Confinement Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Chapter.Paragraph)

Quote #10

"I am not asking you. I'm telling you. You are coming home with me, and you are going to sleep in my room, which is going to be your room—and I don't care if you sleep on the floor or the windowsill or what—but you are going to sleep there and not here." (46.23)

Sometimes lack of total freedom is a good thing, because it means someone cares enough to not let you go. Maniac needs Amanda telling him to come home a lot more than he needs the ability to sleep with zoo animals and run ten miles a day.
