    Melding the entirely true and the wildly fictional, Dead End in Norvelt is a novel about an incredible two months for a kid named Jack Gantos, whose plans for vacation excitement are shot down when he is "grounded for life" by his feuding parents, and whose nose spews bad blood at every little shock he gets. But plenty of excitement (and shocks) are coming Jack's way once his mom loans him out to help a fiesty old neighbor with a most unusual chore - typewriting obituaries filled with stories about the people who founded his town.

    What did you love best about Dead End in Norvelt?

    I liked the humor Jack Gantos infused in the story. The book of is full of quirky characters we have all encountered in our own lives, and the honest perspective of the main character makes the situations he finds himself in all the more enjoyable to read. It is always good for grown ups to remember how kids often view them and kids will empathize with Jack's difficulty in figuring out the adults (and kids) in his life.
