    “Dead End in Norvelt,” written by Jack Gantos, is the 2012 Newbery Medal winner. This award is given to one book for the most outstanding contribution to children's literature. I can't wait to read it... I heard it is pretty funny! It would also be a great read for my Guys Read Book Club.

    Another excellent book for young adults and adults. If you like to listen to books on CD; the author reads this one, and it is hilarious!
