Al Capone Does My Homework by Gennifer Choldenko
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Visiting Alcatraz is always fun; this time Moose is dealing with a fire in his home, losing a bottlecap tossing contest and trying to figure out why Piper is giving away such nice gifts to people on the island. Natalie plays an increased role, and Moose is figuring out ways to deal with her "special" nature.
My biggest complaint? Not enough Capone. He does provide The Big Clue (well, A Big Clue to one of the mysteries) but is mostly off-stage. And please, next time can he be the librarian?
Great addition to the series.
