By Jerry Spinelli (Electronic Book, 2014)
Jeffrey Lionel "Maniac" Magee might have lived a normal life if a freak accident hadn't made him an orphan.

  • "Writing that bursts with creativity, enthusiasm, and hope for the future; in short it's a celebration of life." (Booklist).

  • For Jason and Marceline:
    "In the equally funny and often earthy sequel to Space Station Seventh Grade the author again does not so much probe the teenage mind as rummage through it, uncovering a collage of small anxieties, the larger joys and bafflements of sex, the need for peer approval and the often well-hidden earmarks of intelligence and decency." -The Horn Book
    For Who Put That Hair in My Toothbrush-:
    "The characters are so believable you could touch them. The humor flows so naturally you want the story to go on... A superb book. - Voice of Youth Advocate
