From Norvelt to Nowhere by Jack Gantos
278 pages; book two. If you have read the first book of this short series, then you have already met Jack Gantos, the author and the main character. Jack is well-meaning and clever, but most of the time he is fairly clueless and lovable. However, he isn't a very convincing character as I believe that very few twelve-year-olds possess that level of innocence and earnesty usually trademark of a much younger child. The actual plot is twisting and elaborate. Every chapter contains an alarming development or cringe-worthy event, and readers will try to help Jack solve the latest Norvelt murder and will learn a shocking truth that no one saw coming. And at the end of the day, no one is who you thought they were and nothing is as it seems.
