Son of the Mob by Gordon Korman

Son of the Mob is an funny, realistic fiction book. I think that this book is good for both boys and girls.  Son of the Mob is about a regular high school  boy named Vince Luca.  Vince’s dad, Anthony Luca, is in charge of a huge criminal organization.  While Vince tries to lead a normal life, his dad’s job is always interfering.  For example, when Vince signs up for the school football team, no one will even touch Vince out of fear that his dad will “pay them a visit”.  Also, the Luca house is completely bugged by the FBI.  The only way that they can talk to each other is down in the basement.  To make matters worse, Vince falls in love with  FBI agent’s daughter, Kendra Bightly.  Now Vince has to find a way to keep his family secret away from Kendra because if he doesn’t, he would risk having his dad arrested.  If you want to find out if Vince can keep the secret and keep his dad out of jail, you’re going to have to read the book.
