Dead End in Norvelt

Jack Gantos

This is the story of Jack Gantos growing up in the small planned town of Norvelt.  It is both true and fictional.  And always entertaining.  Lots of strange adventures, and quite possibly a murder mystery.  Great stuff.


“The author of this book, Jack Gantos, put the true story of his childhood and some fiction parts together. In the book, Jack gets grounded for the whole summer vacation because he accidently shot a rifle, not knowing it was loaded. He is disappointed, but unexpectedly, he spends his summer in an interesting way! Check out how he spends his summer!” —a reader like you
