Read full description of the books:
I found this to be an excellent read,and gave a vivid picture of Chicago's jazz world of the 1920's.Paulie,the 13 year old boy who wanted to be a jazz musician learned a valuable lesson about obeying his parents.Frank,Paulie's father also learned not to get mixed up with gangsters like Herb.The lure of "easy money",had,in a way,corrupted him.Those were the positives in the story.There was the uses of ethnic nicknames,which was the common thing at the time the story took place.The downside were 4 uses of Jesus' name in profanity,and one instance of GD by Frank.Still,it's an excellent book!
