Al Capone Does My Shirts (Google eBook)
Today I moved to a twelve-acre rock covered with cement, topped with bird turd and surrounded by water. I'm not the only kid who lives here. There's my sister, Natalie, except she doesn't count. And there are twenty-three other kids who live on the island because their dads work as guards or cook's or doctors or electricians for the prison, like my dad does. Plus, there are a ton of murderers, rapists, hit men, con men, stickup men, embezzlers, connivers, burglars, kidnappers and maybe even an innocent man or two, though I doubt it. The convicts we have are the kind other prisons don't want. I never knew prisons could be picky, but I guess they can. You get to Alcatraz by being the worst of the worst. Unless you're me. I came here because my mother said I had to.

Review: Al Capone Does My Shirts (Al Capone at Alcatraz #1)User Review - Elizabeth - Goodreads
Read this in approximately two hours, including air travel distractions, so it definitely kept my attention and kept me entertained when I really couldn't bear another in-flight movie. The story was good, too. (This is quite the helpful review, I'm sure.) Read full review
