When I first moved here, I thought all the bad guys were on one side of the bars and all the good guys were on the other. But lately, I’ve begun to wonder . . . 

Moose’s family moved to Alcatraz so his father could work as a guard and his sister could attend a special school in San Francisco. Living on an island with a few hundred no-name hit men, con men, and mad dog murderers (and a handful of bank robbers, too) has its challenges. Like Officer Darby–who seems to have it in for Moose; Jimmy–who feels jealous of Moose’s baseball friend Scout; Annie–who demands that Moose fess up to a secret that could get his family kicked off Alcatraz; and Piper, the warden’s cute, danger-loving daughter–who is as mad at Moose as often as she is sweet on him. By comparison, Willy One Arm and Buddy Boy, the cons who work at the warden’s house, and Seven Fingers, the ax murderer who helps his family out when their toilet is stopped up, don’t seem all that bad. But the line between good and bad is much clearer than Moose realizes. And if he doesn’t figure it out soon, he could be in a world of trouble.

    " The story of Moose Flanagan and his sister Natalie continues in the second book of the Al Capone series by Gennifer Choldenko. After a wonderful start in AL CAPONE DOES MY SHIRTS, Choldenko out does herself with the sequel. All of the old gang is back and a few new characters are introduced including the notorious Al Capone, himself. Discover what happens when Capone asks Moose for a favor. Choldenko has an amazing way with words and makes a story come alive. You want to be one of Moose's friends. You want to be there on Alcatraz with all of the families. You laugh a lot, you cry a little, and you celebrate with them all. "

    " My favorite part in the book is whaen Moose's sister finds out that the cons have no guns and she help figure out the case. "

    " A great continuation to the story of a 12 year old boy named Moose who lives on Alcatraz island with his family. The author does a great job of making a believable kid who stumbles into adventures but is just trying to be a normal kid in the 1930's. "
