New Teen Fiction Entices Readers with Mafia, Undercover Agents, and Fist Fights
Accidental Mobster, the first book in a new series by M. M. Cox, lures readers with a twist on the popular gangster theme—what would it be like to be a teenager living in the house of a made man?
The Accidental Mobster is a deviation from recent popular teen fiction, which has relied heavily on paranormal characters and dystopian themes to draw readers. In contrast, the Teen Mobster Series, and the Accidental Mobster in particular, gives readers a chance to explore contemporary subject matter that has captured the attention of audiences for decades—from the classic movie The Godfather to the more recent HBO series, The Sopranos.
“I actually wrote the book because of my strong respect for law enforcement and my fascination with the history of organized crime,” author M. M. Cox said. “Accidental Mobster dabbles in the real world of crime, so it’s an exciting alternative to much of the young adult fiction one sees on the shelves at bookstores.”
Accidental Mobster will be sold in print and e-book format by Bluewood Publishing on their website and by other vendors including amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com. The print version can also be requested at most bookstores. The 232 page novel is available in print format for $12.99 and in e-book format for $2.99. The sequel, Undercover Wiseguy, is scheduled for release in 2013. The series website is www.teenmobster.com. An e-book or print review copy is available on request.
