Review - Al Capone Does My Shirts

The first library I looked in had eight copies — all checked out. When I finally found it, I could see why it was so popular. It's an unusual book. I enjoyed reading about Moose's relationship with his sister.

The ending didn't really bother me like it did Rae Lyn, but it wasn't the best part of the book.
