Brooklyn 1977. April Lundquist lives in Dyker Heights, a neighborhood populated by the Mafia. Three hit men live on her block:
Francesco "Frankie the Crunch' Consiglione, Vincent "Gorgeous Vinny" Persico, and Salvatore "Soft Sal" Luciano. When Soft Sal approaches April and her best friend, Brandi Rinaldi, for a favor, well . . . the girls can't refuse.

But does the favor, along with the crisp hundred-dollar bills that turn up in their schoolbooks, mean that April and Brandi are now in with the Mob? Will April be able to get "protection" for her older brother, Matt, when he makes the big mistake of falling for the daughter of a big crime boss? And will April's connection to Soft Sal bring her closer to Dominick DeMao, bad-boy rocker and heartbreaker?

Soft Sal, Matt, Dom . . . in April's neighborhood the guys stir up all the trouble, but April wouldn't have it any other way.

This book...was good. Not great but it was a fun read to pass the time. Unfortunately, I don't have much time to pass. :( BUT I still finished this book because it was funny. xP The idea of living with the Mafia, especially the Italian Mafia, is really scary. I'll probably be freaked out everyday, making sure that no one near me is dying because of the Mafia. But, in a way, it'll also be extremely safe because the Mafia will be there to protect the neighborhood, ya know? Anyway, I'm gonna make this short because I really have to study for my math quiz tomorrow and I'm totally failing that class. *warning* Do Not Take AP Stats. Ever. You'll Die. Anywayy, this book is fun to read but don't read it unless you have nothing else to do. That's my advice.
