Gennifer Choldenko’s Al Capone Does My Shirts (2004) tells the compelling story of twelveyear-old Moose Flanagan, his autistic sister Natalie, and their family on Alcatraz Island in the mid-1930s. At the outset of the novel, the Flanagan’s have just moved to Alcatraz from Santa Monica so that Mr. Flanagan can work as an electrician and guard at the famed prison and Natalie can attend a new school for autistic spectrum disorders.
