From Norvelt to Nowhere

Jack Gantos

When an explosion shuts down his school for repairs, young Jackie Gantos is free to accompany Miss Volker to Hyde Park, NY to pay last respects to the recently deceased Eleanor Roosevelt, the founder of Norvelt. However, their journey is overshadowed by tragic news – Mr. Spizz, the murder suspect from Dead End in Norvelt, is still at large when a new victim dies, and Miss Volker’s twin sister has expired. Being pursued by two private investigators and a mysterious stranger in disguise, Jackie and Miss Volker head to Florida to continue their off-the-wall adventure that began in the Newbery Medal-winning Dead End in Norvelt. Ages 9 to 11
