Reviews

Filled with detailed descriptions of decadent Italian meals, gorgeous clothes, heart-stopping violence, and sweet yet lusty love and desire, Mafia Girl will find a wide variety of readers, some intrigued with the Mob, others seeking a love story.--Booklist


Mostly a down-to-earth slice of life.--Kirkus Reviews


Gia's rough language and devil-may-care attitude hide a surprisingly naive young woman verging on adulthood...Mafia Girl epitomizes the exhortation Don't judge a book by its cover and may well entice older, reluctant readers.--VOYA


The twinkling backdrop of Manhattan and the budding romance between two opposites will make YA fans adore this novel. The characters are well thought out, adding to the allure of Blumenthal's uncommon storyline.--RT Book Reviews


Blumenthal tells a good story--there's Gia's friendship with rich but lonely Clive, her uphill fight for the school presidency, her instant chemistry with the cop she calls Officer Hottie, and her father's declining fortunes.--Publishers Weekly
