Gia lives the life so many girls dream of. Money, respect, and the father of all fathers: a mafia boss. Born into a world where Gia is looked upon differently and years beyond her age, she struggles to find her own identity and begins to really be concerned for the safety of her father and ones she loves. But, life gets even more complicated when Gia gets in trouble with the law and then falls for the “hottie” police officer, Michael. Sure, he’s a few years older, but the main concern is the conflict between her law breaking mafia family and the law abiding life she wants to live, mixed up with a police officer. What’s a girl to do?
You only get a glimpse into Gia’s mafia lifestyle, which is how she feels too, always being protected with lies, and is a bit of a bummer as you wait for this epic climax between good and bad, but it never really comes. Despite being seventeen, the age conundrum made the story flow and give meaning to Gia’s purpose. It was a good story, and I would recommend it to those just wanting a change from typical young-adult high school drama.
