Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko
This is a great book about a twelve-year-old boy who is trying to cope with his older sister's autism and their family's recent move to Alkatraz (where his father is an electrician and a prison guard). I read this for our teen book group and we had quite a nice discussion about the book. It's one of those books that I liked the first time I read it, but I loved it the second time around.
