Wow! I found the initial description intriguing, and guessed from the description that it would be a fast-paced read. What I did not expect was all the FEELS. Primary characters are all three-dimensional, and the emotional responses and break-downs they display I found completely realistic. Well, okay, I have never actually been in the Witness Protection Program, but I have known some very strong kids pushed to their breaking point. The last two pages had me absolutely sobbing in my kitchen. Fortunately, my kids all had their noses stuck in a movie and didn't notice.
Grab some tissues and grab the book, then settle in for a fantastic read!
