Al Capone Shines My Shoes by Gennifer Choldenko

Moose may have taken advantage of Al Capone to secretly get what his family needed, but Capone is smart enough to see a chance to help himself. Soon after Moose's sister, Natalie, starts attending her special needs school, Moose finds a note from Capone in his shoes. The note says that it is Moose's turn to do Capone a favor. Moose does not know what Capone wants, but he does know that Al Capone is still very powerful behind bars. For his own safety, Moose must decide if he should tell his parents the truth about Capone's part in helping Natalie or keep his secret and complete Capone's illegal errand. 

Choldenko's second book in her Alcatraz series is just as good as or even better than Al Capone Does My Shirts. Now that readers know who Moose is and how he thinks, they can delve deeper into his mind. How does he feel about Natalie's special needs? How far is he willing to go to protect his family and friends? How does he really feel about Piper? Following an undeviating plot, Choldenko adds more suspense, thrills, humor, and emotion to Moose's extraordinary story. The final book in the series is Al Capone Does My Homework.
