AL CAPONE THROWS ME A CURVE Tales from Alcatraz, Book 4

by | Read by Kirby Heyborne, Gennifer Choldenko [Note]

Children Ages 8+ • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Two things are clear to Moose Flanagan: Living near criminals like Al Capone on Alcatraz with a prison strike looming and watching his special needs sister will leave little time to get a spot on his high school baseball team. Narrator Kirby Heyborne's intuitive vocal choices channel an unforgettable summer in 1936. He exposes the story's layers of conflict using changes in cadence and tone that reflect the historical details and events. Moose cares for his sister, and the responsibility of her care weighs heavily. Heyborne gives their relationship verve and treats it with reverence. When Natalie gets lost in the cell house, Moose's mission to save her will have listeners glued to their headphones. S.H. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2018]
