9780142417188: Al Capone Shines My Shoes

Moose's sister has got a place in the perfect school on the mainland, one that will help her deal with her autism. But there is one hitch. She got the place with the help of Al Capone and now it's payback time. Soon Moose is caught up in a terrible cycle of secrets and favours that threatens to destabilise his entire family in this nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat novel.

Review:

`The evocative setting and sensitive portrayal of Moose's sister Natalie, whose autism has yet to be recognised as a condition, add depth to the story of a well-meaning boy floundering in and out of trouble'
--The Bookseller

`This sequel is ingenious . . . The terrific storytelling, which adds suspense and dread to the humour and poignancy of the first book, is underpinned by the author's own memories of her autistic sister and her diligent research into the history of the inhabitants of Alcatraz'
--The Times

`Gripped me with suspense and excitement . . . fabulous!' --Communication - The National Autistic Society

`A witty and engaging sequel to Al Capone Does My Shirts, this story is a real treat'
--TBK Magazine

'Captivating' --Jewish Chronicle

'Cleverly constructed and compulsively readable, this excellent novel deserves a wide readership'
--Books for Keeps

`A delightful and highly unusual story . . . The community of Alcatraz leaps off the page and the children are particularly well observed . . . very enjoyable'
--The School Librarian

About the Author:
