Product Details


+Delivers a satisfying conclusion to readers who’ve grown fond of this cast of characters.” — School Library Journal

“Rich characterization, tender drama, and sleuthworthy clues, this poignant mystery makes for a thoroughly satisfying conclusion to the landmark historical trilogy.” — Booklist, starred review

“Choldenko consistently excels at penning pitch-perfect dialogue and balancing a large cast of original characters, and this title is no exception….A satisfying finale to what has become a cornerstone series in contemporary children’s literature.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Choldenko’s multifaceted novel offers something for everyone-history, mystery, intrigue, and humor. Ultimately, though, it’s this extremely likable boy working through friendships and crushes, on the one hand, and wrestling with family and community problems, on the other, that has held our attention through three books.” — The Horn Book

“Choldenko continues to infuse the Alcatraz community with warmth and originality. . .Despite being ‘the roughest hard-time prison in America,’ by the end of this winning series, it’s also a place Moose comes to proudly call home.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Choldenko’s storytelling is compelling, portraying human decency as a force more powerful than heroism.” — Newsday
