Murderers, mob bosses, and convicts—these guys are not your average neighbors. Unless you live on Alcatraz. It’s 1935 and twelve-year-old Moose Flanagan and his family have just moved to the infamous island that’s home to criminals like notorious escapee Roy Gardner, Machine Gun Kelly, and of course, Al Capone. Now Moose has to try to fit in at his new school, avoid getting caught up in one of the warden’s daughter’s countless plots, and keep an eye on his sister Natalie, who’s not like other kids.

All Moose wants to do is protect Natalie, live up to his parents’ expectations, and stay out of trouble. But on Alcatraz, trouble is never very far away.

    " I truly enjoyed reading every bit of this book. I was sad when it was over because I was left wondering what happened next. I would use this is my classroom because even though it is set in a time in the past, it is full of dialogue and topics interesting to children of elementary age. "

    " Great book that deals with exceptionalities and family struggles. However, it is historical and ties in a great story line to a historical place that children will love. I would definitely recommend this book for students at the high elementary level. "

    " I absolutely loved this book. I can somewhat relate to Moose because I had to move far away, from the rest of my family, friends and sports teams, when I was little. I cannot relate to having a sibling with a disability but I would love to work with children like that and want my masters in disabilities. This book was somewhat sad to me. I hate to see Moose left out because of how his parents are so busy with work or his sisters needs. I think this book would be a great read for older students or maybe even students who deal with the same things at home. "

    " This month's book for book group. I liked it. It's interesting to see how families handled children with mental illnesses back in the 1930s. "
