Summary:   In the historic town of Norvelt, Pennsylvania, 12-year-old Jack Gantos spends the summer of 1962 grounded for various offenses until he is assigned to help an elderly neighbor with a most unusual chore.




This book was amazing! I really liked how he got grounded. Everything in this book contributed to make this book what it really is. This book wouldn’t be as good if he wouldn’t get grounded. I love this book.-Eric

I read the book Dead End in Norvelt by Jack Gantos. I thought this book was okay. It could go either way, bad or good. Read it to find out what you think. -Olivia

This book is about a boy named Jack who lives in a small town called Norvelt.  It is the summer and Jack is grounded so he has nothing to do.  But when his neighbor calls him over to help her with a very interesting job, Jack’s whole summer turns around!  I thought this book was interesting, but not great. It definitely was not OPLbery worthy.-Skyler
