DESCRIPTION: 12 year old Moose moves to Alcatraz with his family, including his autistic sister, Natalie, who his mother tries to pretend is 10 years old, but is really, like, 16. Alcatraz is where the baddest of the bad go. Moose tries to get used to the thought of living on an island where convicts do the laundry, sewing, etc. And if that’s not bad enough, he has to deal with the warden’s daughter, Piper. He’s always commenting on her movie star smile.

REVIEW: My teacher read this book to my class and I immediately loved it and so did the rest of the class. It’s a book about changes and how to live through it. I mean, going from San Francisco to an island full of convicts. He does a pretty good job of handling it. I would have just punched a pillow. The genre is children’s fiction. I would recommend this book to both boys and girls.
