Teen Book Talk - Son of the Mob

Teen Book Talk – December 16, 2010
We all know what it’s like to have an opinion that doesn’t necessarily match the ideals of our parents. No one knows this more than Vince Luca. He just doesn’t want to follow in his father’s footsteps, and his father doesn’t seem to understand why. See the trouble for Vince is, his dad is a mob boss in New Jersey whose idea of making the business last is to hand it down to Vince when he’s at retirement age. Vince spends his entire life avoiding anything criminal - or that’s how it feels to him. The only problem? He keeps stumbling into situations that require his father’s help to fix. Oh, not to mention the little detail of the girl he likes being the daughter of the FBI agent determined to bring his father down. What’s a guy to do, especially if he’s a son of the mob?
Join us on December 16th as we discuss Gordon Korman’s Son of the Mob. Copies are available for checkout at the front desk or can be reserved.
