Al Capone Does My Shirts, by Gennifer Choldenko

Living on Alcatraz Island at the same time as Al Capone is an adventure, all its own. But, try living there with your autistic sister. This is a humorous coming of age story that is sure to intrigue boys with "What would it be like to live on Alcatraz Island?".

Activity: We contacted the Federal Park on Alcatraz Island and asked if we could have a virtual tour of the Island. A Park Ranger guided the boys via conference call through significant areas of the park in which they visited via the Internet. Our teen guy leaders did an excellent job!
