The Disappearance of Sloane SullivanThe Disappearance of Sloane Sullivan by Gia Cribbs
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The disappearance of Sloane Sullivan has a great intro where it appears Sloane is talking to the audience about the negatives of being under witness protection. I received a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Sloan Sullivan has been under protection since she was 12 years old. Her sometimes brother, father or uncle, Mark, depending on the situation is the agent that moves with her to ensure she is always protected. They have moved more than 10 times over the last 6 years. This is the last year the Sloane has to change her name as she has to do each time they move. She is 18 years old, someone has confessed to the crime she witnessed and she no longer has to worry about repercussions of what she saw. She can come out of witness protection and start a new life just in time for college.

Sloane has had a pretty good life if you ignore the constant moving, name changes and loss of her family and best friend. She is applying to some of the best universities in the country because she has excellent grades and test scores. She manages to keep herself aloof from most of her classmates at each school she attends, though she has had a couple of situations that involve dating teenage boys, but, Mark is always there for her watching out for her and protecting her. They have really become a real family. The last move where she becomes Sloane Sullivan is where things start to go really wrong. She finally runs into someone from her past and things go on a downward spiral that leads Sloane to some realizations that will threaten her family. It is a great suspense story with some great characters and some that epitomize everything that can go wrong with being a teenager.
