Son of the Mob by Gordon Korman

22237[1]Vince Luca is like any nice guy you might meet here at our school. He is a good student, good looking, able to get a date every once in a while, but nothing that turns into a relationship. Tonight, he is about to fulfill one of his dreams—making out with a beautiful girl on Bryce Beach. She wants a blanket so they can lay down on the beach. He gets out of the car, opens the trunk. And right before he reaches for the blanket, he freezes. The blanket is there alright, but it is wrapped around a dead body. Sounds like the beginning of a mystery novel, doesn’t it? This isn’t a  mystery though. You see, everyone knows that Vince’s dad, Honest Abe Luca, is a powerful mob boss. Vince doesn’t want any part of the family business, but sometimes it’s unavoidable.

Needless to say, he doesn’t get to make out on Bryce Beach.

But later on, he does meet a girl named Kendra. A real girlfriend with potential. But of course, there is a problem. Kendra’s dad is an FBI agent. And not just any agent. This agent’s job is take down the Luca crime family. How can a guy be so unlucky?
