On Monday, December 20th, the Field Library Teen Book Club will be discussing Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko.
Moose Flannagan moves with his family to Alcatraz so his dad can work as a prison guard and his sister, Natalie, can attend a special school. But Natalie has autism, and when she’s denied admittance to the school, the stark setting of Alcatraz begins to unravel the tenuous coping mechanisms Moose’s family has used for dealing with her disorder. When Moose meets Piper, the cute daughter of the Warden, he knows right off she’s trouble. But she’s also strangely irresistible. 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.
Check out a copy of Al Capone Does My Shirts at the Field Library and then return on the 20th for a fun book discussion and snacks.
Books are available to be picked up at the Field Library.
Sign up today for fun and refreshments.
