    This town is haunted by more than just ghosts . . . When Jack dresses up as a notorious local murderer for Halloween, he thinks he's found the perfect costume to scare away evil spirits. But when the real murderer returns and another old lady dies, he starts to worry that he might not be showing the best judgment. Together with Miss Volker, the last remaining original Norvelter, Jack sets out on a road trip through the dark side of America's history to track down the killer once and for all. Will they save Norvelt? Or are they going nowhere?

Told from Joey's own unique viewpoint by acclaimed American author Jack Gantos, this is an exceptionally funny and touching story about a boy with severe attention deficit disorder (ADD).

  • Dead End in Norvelt

    Jack Gantos

    Product Code: ADXMU
    Paperback 9 years +
    Jack's summer has hit a dead end ...After being 'grounded for life', Jack is facing a summer of doing nothing. But who's got time to die of boredom when there are so many more interesting ways to die in this town? He might crash in his Dad's homemade plane, or catch the disease that makes you dance yourself to death, or fall foul of the motorcycle gang that wants to burn the town to the ground. Old people seem to be dying faster than Miss Walker can write their obituaries, and Jack is starting to worry that it might not just be the rats that are eating the rat poison ..."Dead End" is Jack Gantos' hilarious blend of the entirely true and the wildly fictional, from one of the most darkly amusing imaginations writing today.
