The Afterlife shows the fragility of contemporary life, how uttering a single insult ignites a conflict that leaves a young man dead. In the restroom of a nightclub, Chuy, the good-natured protagonist, remarks to a boy his age wearing yellow shoes, “I like your shoes.” The hot-tempered teen feels he’s being made fun of and stabs Chuy to death. Dead, Chuy floats in a ghostly limbo meeting Crystal, a suicide victim with her own tragic story, and a homeless woman, dying on the street. The story shuttles between the experience of loss and anger felt both by the living left behind and those who have passed on.

Based on the Newbery Honor Book and New York Times Bestseller, Al Capone Does My Shirts is historical fiction with a hint of mystery about living at Alcatraz not as a prisoner, but as a kid meeting some of the most famous criminals in our history. But the unusual living conditions don't mean that kids get to escape the struggles of growing up. This story that's rooted in history and in challenges today's audiences can relate to is charming, funny, and heart-warming all at once. Al Capone Does My Shirts has become an instant classic for kids, and SFYT is delighted to bring it to life!
