Jack is a pretty average kid—until the night that changes his life forever. That is the night men in masks break into his house, threaten Jack and his family, and then ransack their home. It is that same night that Jack discovers that his father has been arrested for drug trafficking and that he is the reason why these men have come into their lives.
Jack, his mother, and his sister are then forced to enter the Witness Security Program. Jack becomes “Zach” and moves to Elko, Nevada, a town in the middle of nowhere. There he meets Sam, the strangest school custodian he has ever encountered, and Catalin, a girl who might make Zach’s uprooting worth the trouble. But just as Zach finally begins to piece together a new life, he finds out that the dangerous men have tracked them down again. And if they are found, it will be more than their secret identities that will be destroyed.
