Underboss

Author: Peter Maas
Reviewer's Age: Grade 10

Underboss, written by Peter Maas, is about a man named Sammy Gravano. This book takes place during his early years leading up to his mid 30's. The book starts off by taking you through his teenage life and giving you background on how it was at that time of his youth and how the Mafia ruled all in certain parts of the globe. After his early years are over he becomes a made member in one of the biggest organized crime families in American. Sammy then had to make the hardest choice a man could ever make in his life. That choice was to bring down John Gotti, the head of his family, or go to jail for more than 50 years of his life. His choice won't only surprise you it will shock you. This is easily the best book I have ever read in my life. I really don't like to read all that much but once I started to read this I had to finish. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the Mafia or just in reading about someone's life. It truly is an inspiring book.
