Undoubtedly a master of suspense, Duncan has written a spellbinding tale of uniquely contemporary horror. Seventeen-year-old April Corrigan's life ends abruptly when she learns that her airline executive father has been working secretly undercover for the FBI. Now his testimony against a notorious drug dealer has placed the whole family in danger, and April and her family are quickly relocated under the Federal Witness Security Program. What begins as a temporary measure soon must become a way of life. April, an ace tennis player, has to stop playing tennis; her mother must give up a lucrative career as a children's author; their names are changed; and April's naive attempt to communicate with her boyfriend causes the violent death of an agent. The entire book is fast-paced and enthralling, but the conclusion will have readers on the edge of their chairs. April and her grandmother get involved a high-speed cross-country chase which culminates in the death of a hit man. Although some readers will not be able to imagine having to sever completely all ties with their past, they won't be able to put this book down.
April Corrigna feels like her life is over when she learns that her father has been working undercover for the FBI and the family must relocate under the Federal Witness Security Program. No one can reach them now...or can the?
Great book....filled with suspense.....a page turner
I was up until 5am reading this book -- I couldn't put it down! There were plenty of twists and turns as to why the main character and her family had to leave, and where they would go. When you thought they were safe in hiding, something happened and they were on the go again.
Duncan writes for the young adult, this a good one with the lesson of you don't always get what you want.
YA thriller about a family placed in the FBI's witness protection program. There's really not much here for an adult reader, though teens would undoubtedly identify with the young heroine. (I mostly wanted to dope-slap her.)
