    *Starred Review* When Nicki Demere, 13, is plucked from the foster-care system by two U.S. marshals, she isn't expecting to become one herself. But there is, you see, a family in witness protection hiding from a notorious criminal family, and the government thinks that adding an extra kid to the protected family will strengthen its disguise. And who better than adaptable, pickpocket extraordinaire Nicki? Fitted out with a brand-new name (Charlotte Trevor), strict instructions not to stand out (she's to get a B-minus average, make a few friends without getting super-popular, and practice a sport without excelling), and a shiny Taser (only because she begged), plucky Nicki/Charlotte adjusts to her new life and family, complete with an obnoxious younger brother. But flying under the radar is harder than it seems, and it will take every bit of street smarts she has to keep herself and her new family safe. Burt, a fifth-grade teacher, nails the tween voice in his fiction debut. Nicki, sassy but lonely, is an endearing, easy-to-root-for heroine, and the bonds she forms with the Trevor family as well as her numerous escapades charm as easily as they entertain. A delightful, sometimes touching balance of action, humor, and heart. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
