What happens when a rich kid leaves the posh suburbs to spend the summer in Brooklyn with his Italian relatives? Read on for Kidzworld's review of Nicky Deuce: Welcome to the Family!


You Talkin' to Me?

Every summer, Nicholas Borelli II looks forward to going to Camp Wannameka to run, swim, sail, fish and canoe with his pals. But this year, an accident leaves the camp knee-deep in sewage! With the cancellation of summer camp, Nicholas has nowhere to go except Brooklyn, where he'll be staying with Grandma Tutti and Uncle Frankie. Although he dreads it at first, Nicholas finds himself liking his new surroundings and all the delicious Italian meals his grandma's cooking up. And it's great how Frankie teaches him all about his Italian heritage and even gives him a nickname - Nicky Deuce.

With a new name, a new attitude and new friends, life is lookin' good in Brooklyn. But things start to take a turn for the weird when straight-laced Nicky starts shoplifting and sneaking into movie theaters without paying. Life gets even weirder when he meets his uncle's friends - Sallie the Butcher, Charlie Cement, Jimmy the Iceman and Little Johnny Vegas - who sound like they work for the mob! And when Nicky comes across his uncle's work bag filled with weapons and bulletproof vests, he's absolutely convinced that his uncle and his friends are gangsters!


The Bottom Line

So is Uncle Frankie working for the Italian mob? Will Nicky be able to stay out of trouble? You'll have to find out by reading Nicky Deuce: Welcome to the Family. It'll give you great insight into the true meaning of la famiglia.

-=Chapter 1=- Uninvited Enemies My alarm went beeping off. God, why did I have to wake up at 7 AM? I was Faith Baxter. Baxters shouldn't wake at 7.  Anyways, let's say some envied me, Kitty, Garroth, Lynn, Jay, Malia, Dom, and Xylia. Thanks to them, my parents were killed, I was almost killed, Jayla turned on us, and I fell into a river and gorge and broke my arm.  I love those guys.  Other than that, we are kind of heroes. We killed the government, NOW AMERICA IS IN CHAOS! YAY TO US! Well, I'm getting off track. Back to the day... I got up and got ready, putting my hair in my normal bun as always. Damn, I looked good. I stretched and got changed, opening my dorm door to the fresh, popcorn smelling scent of the hallway. My boyfriend, Garroth, was apparently still sleeping.  That lazy guy. Oh well. I stretched my large angel wings.  Oh yea. I'm a freak.  I flew up at the high ceiling and flew to my class. It really avoids the crowds, and you can high five any other bird like freaks flying bye. I landed at combat class. I took the class because of what happened with the government.  After classes finished, I decided to go to the city. I snuck to the portal and entered, walking along the sidewalk. Once I made it, I sat down on a bench until something moved on the corner of my eye.  When I saw who it was, I immediately texted on the group text.  "GUYS, THE GOVERNMENT IS BACK!"
