    The Radical Rewiew for Son of the Mob

    Son of the Mob Hollywood Hustle is a stupendous book by Gordon Korman. Vince is now graduated high school and is now on his way to college. Vince becomes roommates with William Sutter, a congressman¿s son. After Vince is in college a couple of months, his brother Tommy shows up. He says that his parents told him to come and check up on him. Tommy says he is going to get out of the mob but Vince doesn¿t believe that he will. One of the congressman and his driver becomes kidnapped. Vince automatically believes that Tommy is behind it all but Tommy believes different. Vince and Trey¿s girlfriend go to watch Trey¿s father speak and they start kissing. Then a riot breaks out and Vince saw a few of his uncles wandering around. Vince¿s uncles have a tape lying on the floor, and it accidentally gets mixed up with his project and the turns in the kidnapping video to his teacher. He gets an e-mail that says to meet him out at the beach at midnight. He goes out to the beach and Trey¿s girlfriend tries to kiss him again and he runs. Some one takes pictures of them and shows them to Kendra, his girlfriend. Everyone is mad at Vince and he has to fend for himself. The thing I mostly hated about this book is the names of Vince¿s uncle¿s names. I really like the big twist at the end of the book. This book is part of a series and it can¿t be readout of order. This book reminds me of the T.V. show called Batman. I think a person who would like this book is someone who likes suspense and books that have twist. This book reminds me of some of the Gary Paulsen books.

    Great Book

    THis book was great! Gordan Korman has a great way of grasping a teenage mind and really entrapping you in the plot. I would recommend this book to anyone. This book is suspensful and thrilling and has the realities of a teenagers life mixed in it.

    Even Better Than The First One!

    If you have read the first Son of The Mob I highly recommend that you find time to read the sequel. At first I didn't know how they could put so many twists and turns into the book, but somehow they managed to do just that. This is a must read for teens!
