    Someone is hiding on alcatraz island

    Book Review Outline
    Book title and author: Someone Is Hiding On Alcatraz Island by Eve Bunting.
    Title of review:
    Number of stars (1 to 5): 5

    Introduction
    This story is about a boy who runs away to a island from a gang called the outlaws. He stays on the island the whole night and the outlaws search for him. I thought this book was really good. I don't usually read much books and this one I couldn't put down. It keeps you wondering what will happen next and is a great book. I think the author wrote this book for people who like suspense books. I would give this book a ten out of ten and wanted to write this review because it was such a great book. It was really entertaining.

    Description and summary of main points
    This book was published in 1984 by Clarion Books. The boy starts out by hurting a member of the Outlaws' brother. The Outlaws search for him all through the town. The boy then went to the old prison on Alcatraz Island. He thought he was safe at least until he got back. But he was wrong. The Outlaws took the tour ship to the island and searched for him there to. He hid every where he could possibly hide. Then they captured him and a girl he met while on tour. You will have to read the rest to see how intense the ending is.

    Evaluation
    I liked this book because it made me keep on reading it. It made it more interesting when they said it was a old prison. The characters are Danny all of the outlaws and the girl he met on the tour ship. I don't dislike this book at all. It is one of the best books I have ever read.

    Conclusion
    In conclusion I liked this book because it kept me interested in reading it. It was one of the best books I have ever read. The boy has to run away from the outlaws the biggest gang in the town and that makes it more entertaining. Overall it is a fantastic book.

    Someone is Hiding a Great Book!!!

    The story grabs ahold of you and doesn't let go. It takes you on a roller coaster ride leaving you breathless and hanging on to every word. I have read it numerous times. This book got me started reading when I was 14.

    Great Book!

    I had doubts about the book when I first picked it up, but when I finished the first chapter I couldn't put the book down! Eve bunting created great characters, and I loved the nasty Outlaws.
