Zach's Lie by Roland Smith

Zach's Lie, by Roland Smith, is about Jack, who has to go with his family, into the Witness Security Program, because his dad is caught smuggling drugs in the country and now the guys he worked for are threatening to kill the family if the dad talks.  They move to a small town in Colorado, changing they're eye color, and his sister and mom's hair color. They even changes they're names, Jack Osborne, became Zach Granger, and they thought they were safe. But, when Peter, Zach's new classmate who hates Zach, finds Zach's journel, while Zach's mom and sister go out of town, Zach doesn't know what to do. He can't contact his family, and Peter is threatening to tell everyone who Zach really is. But while all of this is going on, quietly, the worst thing possible happens, the drug dealers, have found their town. Now all they have to do left is track down Zach's family. I would recomend this book to anyone, boys or girls, who likes action books, or realistic fiction books.
