Al Capone Does My
By Gennifer Choldenko
Have you been to Alcatraz Island?
How would you feel if your parents moved to
an island with a lot of criminals?
Well, a kid named Moose Flanagan had that
happen to him.
The genre of this book is historical fiction
because it was based on a real place, but
included fake people.
The setting takes place at Alcatraz Island.
Moose Flanagan, a twelve year who had to
move to Alcatraz Island with his family
because his dad was a prison guard. His
sister Natalie can’t go to a regular school
because she is autistic and the special
school she needs to go won’t let her in.
Moose learns how much you are willing to
do when you love someone.

and it wasn’t to hard.
