The author has given a 60's novel, with fun and rashness combined.

Cassandra, a 16-year old teen, is Armando's daughter. Cassandra's character is portrayed to be a mini-skirt-loving (its 60's, so you know how it goes!), foul-mouth teenager, facing problems with her mom's boyfriend, Milton. As Cassandra already hates Milton, based on her gut feelings, Cassandra has to take steps to 'eliminate' him, when he starts to make moves on her. She approaches her father, Armando, a Sicilian Mafia, for help.

Armando’s daughter by R.J.Blute is a fictional novel depicting time period of late Sixties. Author himself was a teenager in late sixties and so is his protagonist, Armando’s daughter, Cassandra and now this might be my pure speculative instinct speaking but this must be the reason why this novel came into being. Writing style of R.J.Blute is good but can improve a lot with small tweaks.

One way to describe the main character, Cassandra is to tell you, she is Funny & have trait of acting stup

Armando’s Daughter is an almost unbelievable, mob infused, multi-generational family dysfunction disguised as a campaign to save pools in a working class neighborhood. Armando and Cassandra Pagliano accompanied by grand-ma, better known as The Signora, navigate their interpersonal disappointments and let-downs to hold off the mafia, give a boyfriend the boot and rescue the nursing home from The Signora. Actions move quickly accompanied by gritty and urban dialogue. You can almost hear the thick ...more

RJ Blute has succeeded in delivering a mature yet humorous story about dysfunctional families and politics, with a bit of fun poked at the Mafia to add to the juice of the story.

Funny and satirical, an unconventionally commanding girl named Cassandra is the lead for the story, and all the aspects in writing of language, style and story are effortlessly combined to offer a masterpiece that takes a deep look into family and how, inevitably, they are the people you turn to when there’s a problem, e
