Nicki is a 13 year-old foster home tween, going from one foster home to another with the group home in between. She has a heart of gold and fingers that can lift anything without anyone knowing, including from the marshals who ask her to help with the witness protection program.
Like the other reviewers, I too enjoyed this book immensely. I didn't want it to end and I'm hoping that Mr Burk will write a sequel to it. It is a little predictable, but in this day and age, I think it’s a good thing. Enjoy reading it.

This book was certainly an interesting and intriguing read, once I started reading I did not want to stop until I had finished. I’ve never read any book with a plot similar to “Greetings From Witness Protection”. This book combines a tween exploring their middle school life while working in the witness protection program. The plot is a great way to incorporate the witness protection program into a child/tween book. It combines some witty humor along with a thrilling plot. The only bit I think could have been improved about this book is how predictable it is, the ending is quite anticipated. Overall, still a good read especially for tweens. Rating: 3.5/5 Stars

I really enjoyed this, to the point of being disappointed that it was over. The concept is interesting in itself, and the story is incredibly well written.

I adored this book. I was totally charmed by Nicki's snark and the unique premise of a 13-year-old kleptomaniacal pickpocket being recruited into the Witness Protection Program. Jake Burt managed to create a great balance of humor, suspense, and heart in this story, and I will happily recommend it to tweens.
