Staff Reviews

Nicki Demere is a snarky thirteen-year-old pickpocket drafted by the US government for a top-secret mission. Under the alias Charlotte Trevor, she joins a family of three going into the Witness Protection Program, testing the theory that the family will be harder to locate. She settles into her new school unders strict instructions to blend in. As per her orders, she joins exactly one extra curricular and maintains no higher or lower than a B- average (even if it means having to re-do her homework to get several answers wrong). She surprises herself by forming friendships with her shy neighbor Britt, extroverted and overachieving student council member Holly, and even, tentatively, with her new brother, Jackson. But as she becomes more invested in being Charlotte Trevor, the eventuality of the past catching up to them becomes more likely, potentially ruining her chances of being part of a normal family.
— From Kinsey's Picks


Nicki Demere is an orphan and a pickpocket. She also happens to be the U.S. 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 hitmen, 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.
