Saipan Southern High School book club members and other island teens discuss their books of interest by writing their thoughts about the book choice of the month.
As the story goes on, Vince is getting himself into bigger, deeper, and harder trouble. I feel terribly sorry for him; He has his own life as an independent seventeen-year-old. Vince has a wonderful girlfriend to stay with and also a college future to prepare for. Since now he's stuck with two debtors, I guess he has to make some sacrifices. Vince seems to worry too much and care a lot for people that he can’t say no. He’s missing his high school dream life by winding up as a financial advisor who needs to organize Ed and Jimmy's money business. Although he keeps dragging about how much he detests his father’s job, I guess that what he’s trying to solve interferes with it.This chapter was a little boring, since it keeps extending the story of Jimmy & Ed's problem. There was nothing new but only the same old scenario about Vince dealing a pile of problems. The part that interested me was only when Kendra proposed about a code of the ads in Vince's website. I thought that maybe she could be right, and I wondered what it'll result in.
I really like the character Ray because though he is in the mob business with Vince’s father, he seems like a really wise man. Especially because of the part where he convinced Vince about the situation with Jimmy Rat and Ed, saying to leave it alone cause there is nothing he can do about it. I like the part where Vince finally realizes that Ed and Jimmy Rat are playing him and also when he bumped into Cece. Vince is a really genuine guy cause despite what happened between them, he still had the guts to talk to Cece .
There are so many conflicts between a father and his son. This could be common and usual happens in family, but some families in the world would be different to others. I totally understand both of a father and his son, but it does not mean that I am a father. In imagination, I can be anything that I want to be. According to this, I pretend to be my father and what if my son does something bad, it makes me hurt. As much as I love my father, he cares about me so much.
Chapter 14 was okay for me, Vince is going crazy asking people to vote for him and Kendra. There’s a new character I read about and he seems pretty nice. He talked to Vince about Jimmy Rats situation and what his doing is not going to get him anywhere, that he can’t do anything just to leave it alone. I knew all along that Jimmy rat and Ed were just playing with Vince and so I was right, and Vince finally realizes it. Oh I enjoyed reading the part where Vince saw Cece the girl Tommy set him up on a date with, I was surprise he actually spoke to her and see how she was doing.
This chapter was all about Vince. He is really getting into the part of his father’s business. When he listened about Jimmy and Ed’s situation, I think Vince felt so sorry and bad to them. That’s why Vince is trying to help them until the end. But I hope Vince is not going too far because Vince can get into trouble because of that. Every time when I saw Jimmy and Vince together, I felt Jimmy is using Vince for his own benefits. This chapter was not funny but it was okay and I know he will make a good decision.
Vince is really in deep trouble.Ed and Jimmy are just fooling him and he doesn't realize it until nice Ray tells him he should have never gotten himself into it.Ray is a cool guy and i wonder why he is in this business in the first place.he sounds like as if he's there to makesure Vince doesnt become like his father.I think Vince should stop saying he doesnt want anything to deal with his fathers business because right now he's in the center of it all...

This chapter was a bit boring because it kept on going over Vince’s problems. In the chapter he gets into much more deeper problems and get involved with his father business even more. He wanted to help Jimmy and Ed because he was sorry and felt bad for them so he wanted to help them to the end.
