This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

This is a sequel to Al capone Does My Shirts.
This is about a boy, Moose, who moves with his family to Alcatraz for his father's job. Yes they live on the island with other families! It's a story of Moose and his sister, who has austism. In the first book Moose wrote a letter to Al Capone, who is being held on the island, asking for help. Little did he know, he owes Al a favor now!

Release date: September 8th


  1. Love the title. Sounds like a good book!

  2. Sounds like an interesting read, even though I haven't read the first book. My younger cousins have read it though, and like it.

    I agree with Diana, the blog design is amazing!

  3. Sounds really good. I haven't read the first one either but I may have to, thanks! Love your blog too.

    Heres mine:

  4. Thanks for the compliments on my blog. I had to search hard to find a blog layout with owls! I give my many thanks to the talented lady at Template-Mama! And also lots of thanks for her help with making it work for me!
