    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.

    mindy says: "A fun family read (listen)"
    "2012 Newbery Medal winner!!!"

    If you could sum up Dead End in Norvelt in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, classic, and history!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot twists and nose bleeds.


    What does Jack Gantos bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As the author of the book, Gantos uses the tone that the book was written with.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    If you like epic nosebleeds and screwball mysteries than you wouldn't find this story to just be "stupid stuff"


    Any additional comments?

    Read this book on your own or with your children. Its a quick read and delightfully funny. It would be a shame
