This is a fastpaced, satisfying mystery with multiple twists. I recommend this book for readers who want books with more complexity and length. Seira Wilson, Amazon EditorSo my only protection is a kindergarten teacher and a ninetyeightpound female minister....And they dont even believe Im in danger. As Bethany approaches her thirteenth birthday, her parents begin acting more oddly than usual: Her mother cries constantly, and her father barely lets Bethany out of his sight. Then one morning he hustles the entire family into the car, drives across several state lines and leaves Bethany with an aunt she never knew existed. Bethany has no idea whats going on. Shes worried that her mom and dad are running from some kind of trouble, but she cant find out because they wont tell her where they are going.Bethanys only clue is a few words she overheard her father tell her aunt Myrlie: She doesnt know anything about Elizabeth. But Aunt Myrlie wont tell Bethany who Elizabeth is, and she wont explain why people in her small town react to Bethany as if theyve seen a ghost. The mystery intensifies when Bethany gets a package from her father containing four different birth certificates from four states, with four different last names and thousands of dollars in cash. And when a strange man shows up asking questions, Bethany realizes shes not the only one whos desperate to unravel the secrets of her past.In this exhilarating thriller, Margaret Peterson Haddix crafts a taut story so full of twists and turns, readers will be gripped until the startling conclusion.
