Have you ever done something really bad and felt like hiding? Join Jack Gantos in this year's Newbery winner: Dead End in Norvelt. He begins his summer by "borrowing" his dad's stolen Japanese war relic, a supposedly empty gun, and firing it toward a distant drive-in movie about WWII. When it turns out the gun wasn't really empty...and then he hears an ambulance...all kinds of trouble follows.
