it was amazing
Read in June, 2010

How difficult it is for the young girl and her sister to leave their former home and move to a place where they can be safe from their father's enemies. All their happiness and all their friends evaporate into mist when they must become part of a witness protection program because of their father's insistence on testifying at a controversial trial. You'll learn what they've lost and what kind of courage it takes to retrieve enough of themselves to press on. Would you be able to leave all your friends and family, your schools, your home and move into an apartment in a far away town where you know no one and one one knows you and where you're never allowed to say your real name or talk about the past that meant so much to you? This is an excellent story--full of pathos and courage--the two sisters in the story are the two most amazing characters I've met because they have to "parent" their parents and recover all that they lost when they agreed to hide from their past.
