UNITED KINGDOM REVIEWS

“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.”

"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."

"Gripped me with suspense and excitement . . . fabulous!"
