Meet Gia Cribbs, young adult author of The Disappearance of Sloane Sullivan, on July 1st from 6:30pm-8:30pm.
The Disappearance of Sloane Sullivan
No one wants me to tell you about the disappearance of Sloane Sullivan.
Not the lawyers or the cops. Not her friends or family. Not even the boy who loved her more than anyone. And most certainly not the United States Marshals Service. You know, the people who run the witness protection program or, as it’s officially called, the Witness Security Program? Yeah, the WITSEC folks definitely don’t want me talking to you.
But I don’t care. I have to tell someone.
If I don’t, you’ll never know how completely wrong things can go. How a single decision can change everything. How, when it really comes down to it, you can’t trust anyone. Not even yourself. You have to understand, so it won’t happen to you next. Because you never know when the person sitting next to you isn’t who they claim to be…and because there are worse things than disappearing.
Seventeen-year-old Sloane Sullivan is about to be the first person officially released from the witness protection program when she discovers that Jason, the best friend she left behind years ago, is a student at her latest school. If the Marshals find out, she’ll get whisked away to yet another new identity. But keeping Jason a secret might risk both their lives if people from her past catch up to them.
