When Danny saves an old woman from a mugger's attack, he doesn't expect to tangle with the toughest gang in school. He didn't know the mugger is the gangleader's brother. Desperation overcomes his fear when he heads to Alcatraz Island to escape the gang's revenge--and terror turns to action when he realizes they've followed him.

    I got this book from a free give-away at my library. My brother didn't want it, so I was like okay sure I'll take it and see if it's good. Well, YEAH, it was good! It wasn't a 5 star but it was a 4/5 star book. Danny, or Daddy-boy to the gang, is a kind kid but stays away from his share of trouble. Several people he knows have tangled with The Outlaws, the worst gang in high school, and come out regretting it. When Danny helps someone who got jumped, he get into much more trouble than he bargained for. Running away to Alcatraz Island (the island of the most horrendous prison) seemed like the best idea at the time. Then staying was his only option. But the Outlaws had followed him here, and now he had a teen ranger to save, Biddy, who had helped him. I love this book because there is no profanity issues like a lot of more recent books. It is set back a bit, but it is still good!
