Son of the Mob
by Gordon Korman
Vince Luca is like most high school kids. He just wants to find friendship, romance, and get through high school. High school isn’t an easy time for anybody! But what do you do if you not only have to worry about high school, but a father who is a mobster, as well? Complicated doesn’t even begin to describe it!
Vince has sworn never to become involved in the “family business” but it keeps getting involved in his business. He and his dad get along great, when the “family business” is kept away from the family, and over the years Vince has become used to the police and the FBI causing him minor inconveniences. But now the biggest headache Vince has is how to keep the Feds out of his love life, especially when the girl he wants to date is the daughter of the FBI agent watching his family! - Mary Boyd (Retired librarian - IISD)
