It starts off with Jack and his family sleeping. Suddenly, a man thrashed Jack's door open with as much force as a bear. The man grabbed Jack and brought him downstairs. There he found his mom and sister tied up on the couch with two other men standing over them. The men informed them that if they told anyone that the men were at the house to consider them dead. Jack loved superheroes so he depended on them to save him and so while sitting there he asked himself
"Where was the caped cruiser when I needed him?"
After they leave Jack called the police and they showed up immediately. The policemen told them that their dad was involved in drugs so because of that Jack must be put into the Witness Protection Program. Jack's dad is in jail so Jack can not see him because the bad men are looking for them and if they go see their dad, the men could find them and kill them.
Towards the middle of the book, Jack, his mom, and his sister moved to a small town with very few people. Now Jack becomes Zack. He dyes his hair, puts colored contacts, in and dressed conservatively. He can start fresh. The first day of his new school he made one enemy (Peter). Peter was picking on a girl and Zack stepped in and punched Peter in the face. But even though Zack was sticking up for someone he still got in trouble. But the Janitor (Sam) calmed him down. He let Zack go into his office and hit a punching bag to let all his anger out. Now the girl he saved from peter started to like him. He spent a lot of time with her and they become boyfriend and girlfriend.
Zack was finally fitting in and not thinking about his old life .He has lots of friends and was doing well in school. His life was going great . but the men found him. Zack knew that if they caught him they will do as they said and kill him. He did everything he can to keep them away but was not enough. Right when he is losing hope someone showed up to help him! Now they must find a way to catch the men and send them to jail, but will jail cells keep them from trying to kill Zack?
I give this book 3 stars because it is full of action but it could be more detailed with better vocabulary. Some parts need to be cut out but over all it was pretty good. I recommend this book to 5-7th graders because it's an easy read. This book is for girls and boys because they both would like it.
