MURDERERS, MOB BOSSES, AND CONVICTS...
THESE GUYS ARE NOT YOUR AVERAGE NEIGHBORS.
Not unless you live on Alcatraz. It's 1935 and twelve-year-old Moose Flanagan and his family have just moved to the infamous island that's home to criminals like notorious escapee Roy Gardner, Machine Gun Kelly, and, of course, Al Capone. But that's just the beginning of Moose's troubles because on Alcatraz the kids are all cowed by the clever, danger-loving daughter of the warden, Piper Williams. Now Moose has to try to fit in at his new school, avoid getting caught up in one of Piper's countless schemes, and keep an eye on his sister, Natalie, who's not like other kids. All Moose wants to do is protect Natalie, live up to his parents' expectations, and stay out of trouble. But on Alcatraz, trouble is never very far away.

Al Capone Does My Shirts is a realistic fiction about a boy named Moose that lived on Alcatraz in the 1930s. He has an autistic sister named Natalie, since people discovered Autism in the 1940s nobody knows what is up with her. Moose's father now works at Alcatraz and Moose lives there now. This book is about Moose's life on Alcatraz. I liked this book because a lot of unusual stuff happens to Moose. Most of the time Moose watches his sister but he still goes to regular school in San Francisco. This book was very fun to read.
