Gordon Korman ✓ Son of the Mob Kindle

Ther happens to be the head of a powerful crime organization Needless to say while Vince''s family''s connections can be handy for certain things like when teachers are afraid to give him a bad grade they can put a serious crimp in his dating life How is he supposed The novel Son of the Mob by Gordon Kormen is about a seventeen year old boy in high school named Vince Luca Vince’s dad Anthony Luca is the king of the mob in New York Alex Vince’s best friend is also with him throughout the novel The family business is restricting him from being normal and fulfilling a normal life Vince’s brother Tommy is already participating in the family business Tommy is crude rude and rough and does not let anyone think that the business is spineless Vince wants no part in the family business but it always ends up playing a factor in his life Vince’s teachers are even afraid to give him a bad grade and Vince must uit the football team because everyone is afraid that if they tackle him Anthony Luca will come after them Vince begins dating a girl named Kendra but he finds out that her dad is an FBI agent who is determined to put Anthony Luca Vince’s dad in prison Alex warns Vince and says “Can you imagine a Mob prince going out with an FBI agent’s daughter” 101 From the beginning Vince suspects that something was different about his family; his dad had worked odd hours and his mom told him that his dad is working in a vending machine business Throughout the novel Vince is searching for his place in the world and tries to make his relationship work One thing this novel is portraying is that people are not who they appear to be The book also shows Vince’s struggle in his social life as he is trying to overcome many obstacles My favorite character in Son of the Mob is Vince Luca He knows his family’s business is wrong and against the law he wants no part in it Vince is the main character of the book and Gordon Korman does a great job of illustrating Vince’s life and his struggles Vince is searching trying to answer many uestions about his future throughout the novel Vince asks himself if he will ever be offered a job or if he will have to take on the family business when he finishes high school My conjecture is that Gorden Korman wanted the reader to have a positive reaction toward Vince The story is depicting Vince’s life his thoughts and his feeling If I were to relate myself to Vince I think the only thing we have in common is that we enjoy helping others Vince says “I may be a washout as a boyfriend and a web master I may be under federal investigation for loan sharking But surely there’s no worthwhile achievement than helping people in trouble” 208 Vince is a good hearted person who throughout the novel tries to help two men Jimmy Rat and Ed Mishkin get back on their feet as well as deal with the struggles in his own life Anthony Luca was ripping off Jimmy and Ed so they would never get money to pay him back Vince realizes this and almost cries of how bad his father is I believe that Vince is a character that stays the same throughout the novel Vince is a pronounced character who deals with many struggles but still tries to help others I think that the storyline is exciting making it an overall good book I would recommend this fiction novel to young adults I really think that people who like mystery romance and action would enjoy reading this book I think that the author is very clear in his writing and it is comprehensible I also like how this book is very relatable to Romeo and Juliet One could call Vince and Kendra “star crossed lovers” They come from families that are against each other completely The father of Kendra is an FBI agent and Vince’s father is the king of the mob in New York Even though it seems as though it would never work out they still try anyway I like how the author brings up Romeo and Juliet when Kendra and Vince are talking at the end of the story Kendra says they could be like Romeo and Juliet but instead they could live she sees an alternative happy ending to their relationship Although I don’t like how the book ends by Vince saying “Never bring the folks together for a meet and greet” 262 I think there should have been a stronger ending Although there were many plot twists and so I enjoyed reading the book
