's review

really liked it

This is a charming story of friendship, family, and acceptance.

Moose Flannagan is an ordinary seventh grade boy who happens to live on Alcatraz yards from the notorious Al Capone and feet from his autistic sixteen-year-old sister. Choldenko writes each character with love and compassion and a tremendous amount of humor. The ending is perfect.

A great middle grade read!
