Son of the Mob Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Son of the Mob

Vince Luca is a regular high school guy. He has regular problems like any other person, such as his best friend Alex who keeps trying to beat him at everything, and his father, who tells him he must become serious in life. But there is only one difference between him and other kids - his father is the head of a huge criminal organization. There are many advantages to this relationship however. For example, if Vince ever gets poor grades, his teachers will automatically change his marks, thinking that his father will kill them. But Vince is thinking about the future. How will new people he meets react to his family relations? Would he ever be offered a job anywhere? Would he ever be expected to carry on his father's business after completing high school? And the biggest question of all - How will he explain to a girl what his father does for a living? The tempo of the book rises when Vince finally thinks he has found someone. But instead of his dad being the problem between their love life, the girl's dad seems to be the problem. The problem is that her father is an FBI agent, who is working day and night to stash Vince's father in jail! From here, the book shows the son of the mob's struggle in his social life, and how he tries to overcome all obstacles.
