This book ROCKS! Its about a boy (he can run super fast, by the way.) named Jeffery Magee, and his parents die in a car crash. He finds out that he has to live with really strange and prepy foster parents, and when he finds out he has to live with them, guess what he does? He runs to a place where the blacks and whites are separated by the east end and the west end. I shouldn't tell you much more, so read it yourself! Its really great!

This book is awesome. Of course I knew it would. Because Jerry Spinelli is an awesome author. If you read this book you'll know what I'm talking about. If you like this book you might want to read some more of his books:"Wringer", "Crash" and "Star Girl".
