Al Capone Does My Shirts Part 2, Chapter 31

By Gennifer Choldenko

Part 2, Chapter 31

My Dad

  • Moose and Natalie get to the playground and he begins pushing her onto the swing. Before long, though, she falls off the swing, fast asleep after her tantrum. Moose struggles to carry her large sleeping body home. Luckily, dad shows up at the end to carry her inside.
  • After carrying her to her bed, Dad opens up the icebox and splits a beer between Moose and himself.
  • Father-son bonding time. Moose asks his dad why he lets Mom boss him around, and his dad explains that things matter more to her… except for his son. As his says this, Dad fights back tears.
  • Moose starts fighting tears, too—he really wants to tell his dad the story about 105 now.
  • Instead, though, he asks a question that has been on his mind: Is Natalie's condition his fault at all?
  • Dad grabs Moose's shoulders and looks straight at him, swearing that Natalie's problems has absolutely nothing to do with him.
