Publisher's Summary

Nicki Demere is an orphan and a pickpocket. She also happens to be the US Marshals' best bet to keep a family alive....

The marshals are looking for the perfect girl to join a mother, father, and son on the run from the nation's most notorious criminals. After all, the bad guys are searching for a family with one kid, not two, and adding a streetwise girl who knows a little something about hiding things may be just what the marshals need.

Nicki swears she can keep the Trevor family safe, but to do so she'll have to dodge hit men, cyberbullies, and the specter of standardized testing, all while maintaining her marshal-mandated B-minus average. As she barely balances the responsibilities of her new identity, Nicki learns that the biggest threats to her family's security might not lurk on the road from New York to North Carolina but rather in her own past.

Jake Burt's debut middle-grade novel Greetings from Witness Protection! is as funny as it is poignant.

Enjoyable, lovely story

I enjoyed listening to the story, even though aimed for youth, (and I am a couple decades past that). Highly recommend!

Unique plot line and characters you’ll enjoy knowing

This was a very clever story that was suspenseful, yet endearing; thought-provoking, yet funny. I completely enjoyed the storyline, characters, and audio performance. I can highly recommend this book for middle grade readers! Can’t wait for Burt’s next book!

Amazing Family Book

I am a mom to two boys, 14 and 11. I was looking for a family friendly book for the three of us to listen to while taking a long trip in the car. We all loved and adored this story! So fun, witty, and heartwarming!

This is a real "hit"!

Read this with my middle School daughter, because it's on this year's sunshine reader list. it was a really good story. The characters were relatable, the plot was adventuresome and the ending was sweet. We both thoroughly enjoyed this story from the begging until the last sentence. The narrator was perfect for this story as well. We hated to see it end!

Fabulous book

The book is wonderful! Great story line and character development. The reading isn’t perfect-you can tell where they went in to do rereads- but it’s still good!

Family makes a difference.

With anxiety, resilience and a strength of life beyond her years, Niki becomes a cornerstone in witness protection for a new family. Straight out of a foster care system she’s been in and out of for years, Niki finds herself making new friends, new sibling rivalries and trying to stay under the radar. Great story, could not stop listening and recommend this this humorous, but at times serious book. What an adventure!
