Alcatraz is "a twelve-acre rock covered with cement, topped with bird turd and surrounded by water." (p. 3)This makes me think that Alcatraz is a really gloomy place, and probably smells funny.

"I peek out the front window of our new apartment and look up to see a little glass room lit bright in the dark night. This is the dock guard tower, a popcorn stand on stilts..." (p. 4)This would make me feel safe and nervous at the same time. I like the way the author describes the tower as a popcorn stand on stilts. It makes it more vivid to me.

"When we get to the spot by the west end, I notice the terraces. They are full of new pink, yellow and bright purple garden flowers growing in neat rows." (p. 145)I think it's funny that there are pretty flowers growing on this prison island. It is a weird contrast with the gray of the buildings and the rock.
