Review by: Ben DeWeese
Son of the Mob
I am the type of person who does not care for reading. I seem to not get the pleasure out of it like most others. I did, however, like this book because it was a quick read. It felt like it was glued to my hands, and I could not sit it down. This was helpful because I am a procrastinator and tend to wait to the last minute to finish the book. The story is about a high school senior, Vince Luca, who is the son of a mob boss. He hates the fact that every part of his family contributes to the mob, and he is constantly surrounded by it. Vince falls in love with a girl who is the daughter of an FBI agent who has been trying to put the mob behind bars for years. I highly doubt high school students can relate to the Lucasís line of work, but I do believe they can relate to the charactersí personalities. The book had some funny lines and carried the humor throughout the story. My favorite part is the suspense. Whatever situation Vince gets himself into, there is always a way out, but not without an intense struggle. If you could not tell already, I give this book two thumbs up and encourage you to read it.
