Description


A star-crossed, action-packed tale of romance from bestselling author Gordon Korman

Vince Luca is just like any other high school guy. His best friend, Alex, is trying to score vicariously through him; his brother is a giant pain; and his father keeps bugging him to get motivated. There is just one thing that really sets him apart from other kids -- his father happens to be the head of a powerful crime organization.

Needless to say, Vince's family's connections can put a serious crimp in his dating life. How is he supposed to explain to a girl what his father does for a living? But when Vince finally meets a girl who seems to be worth the trouble, her family turns out to be the biggest problem of all. Because father is an FBI agent -- the one who wants to put Vince's father away for good.

"A fast-paced, tightly focused story."—The Horn Book

"[An] expertly plotted escapade."—Booklist

"Funny and unexpectedly affecting."—Publishers Weekly

PRAISE FOR JAKE, REINVENTED

"A compelling investigation of the transience of charisma and the flimsy underpinnings of popularity."


Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

PRAISE FOR JAKE, REINVENTED

"Korman's reworking of The Great Gatsby places the action in a modern framework, which makes it more recognizable for today's readers and may lead them to the classic. Teens will find deeper issues to consider about popularity, being true to one's self, and taking responsibility for one's actions as they relate to the setting and characters."
