My Father's Son by Terri Fields

Kevin Windor has a great life. His dad is loaded with money, he's finally got the girl of his dreams - but what he doesn't know is that his life is about to be turned upside down. On a peaceful Sunday, Kevin turns on his television and sees a face identical to his staring back at him - it's his father, accused of being the infamous DB25 serial killer. Suddenly, Kevin becomes the school pariah: dream girl Emily will no longer date him, everyone at school treats him differently, even complete strangers recognize his face as that of the alleged serial killer. In this thriller/mystery, Terri Fields puts the reader into the shoes of a boy whose world is spinning out of control, and whose only way out is through answers he'll have to find on his own.

My Father's Son was hard to get into, but once I got past the first couple chapters, I was enthralled. The characters were real and the plot was full of twists and turns that could keep any reader on his/her toes. I especially liked that the book, which could've easily been predictable, wasn't! In this fast-paced, suspenseful book, Terri Fields inspects one of the most steadfast bonds that exists: the attachment between a father and a son.
