The Big Problem
It’s bad to believe how a kid could take so many things from different people? Well, you can experience that in this book, Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli. It tells a story of how a ten year old kid developed to be from a good smart kid to a big kid who doesn’t care about school. This story starts with memories to terrible endings. It starts like this…
A ten year old boy named David Paterson who used to live in the countryside had moved with his dad in the city. At first, when his dad told David that he was moving to the city, he was sad to leave from his friends and his school. His dad understood what he was going through. When David walked in to his new school, he was surprised of how peaceful it was. But it was not peaceful as what David thought it was. He was introduced to a bully named Peter. Peter is a bully who doesn’t care about school, gets detention every day, and demands kids around school. After school, David was walking home and peter ran after David and started to throw him everywhere until a teacher saw them fighting and broke up the fight. When Peter had moved schools, David was finally happy at his new school. But three years later, David was in the fifth grade and things started to happen to David. David started to bully people around school, and started to get detention.
David had experienced many things over the past years in school and he had lots of memories from it. He had his mom passed away during school he got bullied by a big kid and had bullied kids around school as well. People don’t experience this kind of things in a book like this but you can in this book. I recommend this book to many people because it’s a true story of how a kids life changes by school. You can learn a lot of things from this book. Please go out and read this book today…
