Rl to join a mother father and son on the run from the Greetings from MOBI #207 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 needNicki swears she can keep the Trevor family safe but to do I'd been looking forward to this book since I first least about it in fall 2016 and it did not disappoint Nicki Demere a group home occupying orphan with legitimate and super well drawn if you ask me kleptomania that manifests as pickpocketing life is forever changed when she finds out she's been chosen for a special program that will pair her with a family in witness protection as an extra child which will supposedly make said family difficult to find but the family Nicki's placed with as it turns out is linked to one of the most notorious crime families in the nation Hijinks ensue What I loved most about this book well there were a couple of things First was NickiCharlotte's or as affectionately refer to her Nicklotte almost indomitable spirit I say almost because she WAS breakable and she DID have points of vulnerability and when they showed boy did they show She was so delightfully human and thirteen and mature by way of life circumstances but also sometimes immature in her handling of stressful situations She totally leapt off the pageI also really loved the interplay between Nicklotte and her brother Jackson whose previous name was Lucas's former lives with their witness protection lives Not even sure it was intentional but by setting the experiences of these two characters side by side I personally got a glimpse into the the way these two kids had been shapedmolded by their upbringings and just how deeply they WE are affected by things like family dynamicsOverall it was a great read and I thoroughly enjoyed it I know my 13 year old self definitely would have too
