REVIEWS

“Choldenko hits a grand slam . . . effortless . . . perfectly paced . . . solid-gold sequel.”

"Superlative historical fiction"

"Choldenko delivers a crowd-pleasing sequel . . . while the adult characters are drawn with warmth and sympathy, Moose's narration keeps the story firmly grounded in a child's viewpoint as he comes to a greater appreciation not only of his sister but also of the conflicting impulses in human nature for good and evil."

“With encyclopedic knowledge of Alcatraz circa 1935 and empathy born of personal experience, Choldenko scores again. This winning and wonderfully imagined novel gracefully deals with the dilemmas that complicate life, fuel great literature, and challenge us all to do the right thing."
