After the death of her grandmother and with her father in prison, Nicki has been shuffled from foster home to foster home looking for someone who will accept her for what she is, a thief, specifically a pick-pocket. When the US Marshals create Project Family, Nicki is trained and chosen to move with a family into the Witness Protection Program (WITSEC) as their daughter. Elena, the family's mother has testified against her brother and they are now all in danger. Nicki becomes Charlotte and joins the Trevor family in North Carolina. What follows are funny, touching events that find Nicki/Charlotte trying to settle into her new life where she must maintain a B- average and remain as unobtrusive as possible, but Nicki has never been good at being unobtrusive.

Greetings From Witness Protection! is a fun coming-of-age story with some mystery, adventure and school hijinks thrown in. Nicki's character is well developed as are the other members of the family along with Nicki's best friend, Brit. Someone like Nicki could not have survived what she has unscathed, so her kleptomania adds depth and reality to her character. Overall, Greetings From Witness Protection! has characters that are easy to identify with and is a wonderful middle grade story. ( )

Totally implausible plot. But totally fun read. ( )

Picked it up by accident...Lucky me! A strong protagonist who could have easily slid into angry snark. Instead, she uses her own painful experiences to help her new fake family heal and become cohesive, makes a valuable friend and even gets her new angsty younger brother to get real. Plenty of action at the end, coupled with a surprise i didn't see coming. Altogether a very satisfying read. ( )

Well written story, taking a girl from foster care and placing her in a family of 3 in Witness Protection, to make a family of 4, in order to hide the family better. Deals with loss (giving everything up that you've known), paralleling the many losses Nicki has had in her life, with those of the family entering WITSEC, but also has triumph over the bad guys written in towards the end.

What would you do if you were given the chance to help out a family in witness protection? In this novel, Nikki is given the chance to become a part of a family to help further disguise them into the witness protection program. No stranger to foster homes, Nikki does not have any family left at the start of this novel, after her grandma's passing and her father serving time in jail. The U.S. Marshals bring Nikki in for witness protection training, along with her new family, in order to help disguise this family of three (mom, dad, and a son) to become an average family of four. This family is in hiding from some really bad guys, and if they are looking for a family of three, a family of four is not on the bad guys' radar. Nikki and her new parents and brother move to a new state, start a new school, and mostly to the brother's disgust they are not alowed to be involved in any social media platform (Yes, that also means Facebook) or connect with old friends. The kids must maintain an average grade of a B-, and most importantly they cannot reveal anything from their past lives. With these new identities they are learning what it means to be a family, form new friendships, and how important it is to remain average. Will the bad guys ever find them? Only time will tell.

I think this would be a good book to recommend to kids who are looking for an interesting twist on family dynamics. ( )
