At first glance, Alex Miller seems like a typical kid, but his life is anything but typical...and fitting in has become a matter of life and death. Alex can't forget the things he has seen, and neither can the man he helped put in jail. The Witness Relocation Program has changed the identities of Alex and his mother repeatedly, but they still need to keep running to stay one step ahead of his enemies. His latest identity as a skateboarder in Virginia Beach is no easy ride. Nosegrabs, ollies, and kickflips are all new to him. Alex has to catch on quickly to blend in, but the biggest trick he'll have to master is staying alive. Ideal for reluctant readers and ESL students, this short novel has action, intrigue, and relatable teen characters, and was a 2009 YALSA Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers.
