Kimberly Weaver | 39 comments Natalie's story is what kept me engaged in this story. The different ways Moose cares for his older sister is endearing, and I imagine their parents felt so isolated and helpless as they sought adequate care for their daughter. I was impressed with how Choldenko was able to develop such a complex character in a seemingly simple way.

Nickole Castillo | 39 comments I agree with you on Natalie's character. I found it sad how she was labeled and treated. Although Al Capone probably wasn't the best person to turn to for help, he did get Natalie into the school she needed. This was a good book! (:
