After his parents die, Jeffrey Lionel Magee’s life becomes legendary, as he accomplishes athletic and other feats which awe his contemporaries.

Everybody knows that Maniac Magee (then Jeffrey) started out in Hollidayburgs and wound up in Two  Mills. The question is: What took him so long? And what did he do along the way? The legend doesn't  have the answer. That's why this period is known as The Lost Year.
