Answer to Monday's Riddle: Life on The Rock...

Excellent guessing, Riddlers! This week, we're spending some time on The Rock. Lizzy's review will reveal a secret about an inmate, and Friday we'll be chatting with Gennifer Choldenko, so be sure to check back! See you all around the book block. ; ) ~ F

I'm an island in a bay, but not a place you'd want to stay. Surrounded by sharks, the water's deep; the shores are sharp, and the men don't sleep. A visit puts you in a cell, it's less like vacation and more like hell. Built to house those deemed bad, my walls have turned some men mad. There's no escape once you're here; I'm the rock they all fear. Hosting criminals was my charge, when kept with me they were not at large.

What am I? Answer: Alcatraz

    Gary :)
