Dead End in Norvelt

I was both surprised and overjoyed when I read the last name Gantos on the spine of Dead End in Norvelt. I have read many other things by Jack Gantos, including the Joey Pigsza series, which I found extremely enjoyable. But I have to say, in comparison, this story towers over any other books written about the war and what it was like growing up in it. Now, be careful in choosing this book to read because although some may find it enjoyable and heartwarming, others may be moved in the wrong direction and receive the author’s message in an alternate way.
