Wacky and entertaining if you are a 10 year old boy -- unfortunately, I have the sense of humor of a 12 year old boy, so it didn't grip me. I was listeing to the audio book, which was well read, but when it had to go back to the library before I had finished it, I didn't really feel the need to find out what happened. Sorry Jack Gantos -- I thoroughly believe that this is a great book, just not for me. ( )

Great fun. But I'm biased because I love history and Eleanor Roosevelt. ( )

Young Jack Gantos stands between his sometimes feuding parents, trying to deal with each of them giving him conflicting instructions, and knowing he'll be in trouble with whichever parent he disobeys. He ends up grounded for the entire summer, granted a reprieve only when the somewhat loony Mrs. Volker, who writes the obits for the local paper, asks for his help. Jack grows fond of the crazy old lady, who promised Eleanor Roosevelt that she would look after all the original inhabitants of the town of Norvelt until the last original had died.
But suddenly that summer, it seems like the original inhabitants are dying at a remarkable rate. We don't really learn until the second half of the book that they are perhaps being murdered, and that there is a mystery involved.
This book is a rollicking fun ride, filled with humor, crazy situations, and a likable protagonist. I'd give it five stars, except the ending seemed rather rushed compared to the rest of the book, and then there was the last few pages, which felt tacked on. In those last pages, Jack learned a valuable lesson in life... but one which really didn't seem related to anything else in the book. So, 4.5 stars. ( )

I didn’t like it, it was too creepy for me, and I don’t like books with open-ended finishes, but my 12 year old loved it. ( )

Children's/middle grade fiction (boys); historic fiction (1960s). Liked this one--had fun wondering which parts were true stories from Gantos' boyhood in Norvelt and which parts were fictionalized (probably not that many old ladies kicked the bucket due to rat poison, I hope). Cover art stinks (the "action" of the plane should be more prominent; maybe the town/scenery could be entirely constructed from yellowed newspaper?) but might be an easy sell to boys, especially if you read them the part about Jack's saving the deer from being shot by his hunter dad by way of silent fart signal (yes, you read that right). ( )

But church had a different kind of math.  You could never be sure what anything added up to, which meant that what was in your imagination while sitting in a pew was just as important as what the preacher was saying--maybe even more important. It's like when you read a book and you know that the words are important, but the images blossoming in your imagination are even more important because it's your mind that allows the words to come to life.
