Rachel N. | 1529 comments It's 1935 and Moose Flanagan lives on Alcatraz, which is an operating prison at the time, with his parents and his sister. Moose's dad runs the electric shop and is a guard. Al Capone did Moose a favor in the first book and now Moose owes him. Moose has to figure out how to pay back the favor while dealing with his friendships and his sister who is autistic. This series in enjoyable and is an interesting look into a side of Alcatraz that isn't commonly written about.

This is actually the second book in the series. The first Al Capone Does My Shirts also features families living on Alcatraz.
