Jeffery Magee is basically homeless. He lives in the deer shed at the zoo. It is very sad for Maniac because both of his parents died. Maniac is really wishing for a home. Maybe, just maybe, he will find one!
Jeffery is walking into Two Mills and meets a girl named Amanda. Amanda is carrying a suitcase of books. Jeffery loves books. Amanda is really not interested in Jeffery because they have different colored skin. In Two Mills, the blacks and whites really don't interact. At first sight, Jeffery really wanted to be Amanda's friend. This is Jeffery's first time in this town, and he just wants a friend and a home.
Amanda decided to accep Jeffery and they become pretty good friends. Jeffery stands up for Amanda, Amanda stands up for Jeffery.
After Jeffery had just been at Amanda's house, they went to take Jeffery home. When they were on there way, they realizedJeffery didn't have a home. It was a difficult decision but in the end, they decided they would take Jeffery nto their home. Now, Beale's house is Jeffery's house and the Beale family is Jeffery's family. They are showing Jeffery his new home in this caption.
Maniac is loved by everyone in his new home. That means Amanda's little brother and sister, Hester and Lester. Maniac is reading a story to Hester and Lester.
So now Amanda, Hester, Lester, Mrs.Beale, Mr. Beale, and Jeffery Magee are one big happy family!
