Al Capone Does My Homework (YA)
Book #76 Read in 2013
Al Capone Does My Homework by Gennifer Choldenko (YA)
This is the third book of this series. Moose lives on Alcatraz Island, where his father is a prison guard. In this book, Moose's father is promoted to Assistant Warden and that brings some danger as the cons would like to hurt a prison boss. As if that is not enough stress, the family's apartment catches on fire and neighbors are blaming Natalie, Moose's special need sister, for it. Can Moose figure out who really set the fire?
I have enjoyed all three books in this series. The books are well-written and the characters are interesting and well-developed. The books have elements of mystery, humor, history and romance. I recommend this series.
