Jack, his mother, and his sister are forced to enter the Witness Security Program, which means that their identities up to that moment will be completely wiped out. Jack becomes "Zach" and moves to Elko, Nevada, a town in the middle of nowhere. There, he enrolls in a new school where he meets Sam, the strangest custodian he has ever encountered, and Catalin, a girl who might make Zach's uprooting worth the trouble. But just as Zach finally begins to put the pieces of his life back together, he finds himself in danger again--and this time his actions could determine the fates of everyone he cares about most.
For ages 11 to 14.
