Melding the entirely true and the wildly fictional, Dead End in Norvelt portrays 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. But plenty of adventure is coming Jack’s way once his mother loans him out to help a feisty old neighbor with an unusual activity involving the newly dead and the long departed…a motorcycle gang and a man on a trike…as well as twisted promises and possibly murder.

Endlessly surprising, this achingly funny New York Times bestseller depicts growing up in an off-kilter place haunted by its amazing past.
