(ages 13 - 17)  At first glance, Alex Miller seems like a typical teen – typical hair, typical clothes, typical hobbies. Look closer, and you'll see that his life is anything but typical – for Alex, fitting in has become a matter of life and death. The witness to a murder, 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, and they 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

This short novel, full of action and intrigue, is part of The Red Line, a collection of high-low titles for reluctant teen readers, from Lobster Press.
