A story about an incredible two months for a boy named Jack Gantos, whose plans for vacation excitement are shot down when he is “grounded for life” by his feuding parents, and whose nose spews bad blood ate very little shock he gets. But plenty of excitement (and shocks) are coming Jack´s way once his mother loans him out to help a feisty old neighbor with an unusual chore. typewriting obituaries filled with stories about the people who founded his utopian town. As one obituary leads to another, Jack is launched on a strange adventure involving molten wax, Eleanor Roosevelt, twisted promises, and homemade airplane, Girl Scout cookies, a man on a trike, a dancing plague, voices rom the past, Hells Angels, and possibly murder.
