Son of the Mob (Son of the Mob, #1) by Gordon KormanVince Luca is just like any other high school guy. His best friend, Alex, is trying to score vicariously through him; his brother is a giant pain; and his father keeps bugging him to get motivated.
There is just one thing that really sets him apart for other kids—his father happens to be the head of a powerful crime organization.
Needless to say, while Vinces familys 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 to explain to a girl what his father does for a living?
But when Vince meets a girl who finally seems to be worth the trouble, her family turns out to be the biggest problem of all. Because her father is an FBI agent — the one who wants to put his father away for good.

Many of the novel's conflicts revolve around the fact that the affable narrator, year-old Vince Luca, refuses to become involved in the family "vending machine business. Mom turns a deaf ear to the shady goings-on, cooking up a steady storm in the kitchen and willing "to serve a sit-down dinner for fifteen guys at four in the morning with ten minutes advance notice. The boy also gets sucked into the maelstrom when he loans money to one of his father's underlings for whom he feels sorry. Funny and unexpectedly affecting, this will grab—and hold onto—even the most reluctant of readers.
