THE GIRL SHE USED TO BE by David Cristofano

Torn from friends, school and home, Melody Grace McCartney is running for her life. A six year old, along with her parents witness a mob killing. The family is put into protective custody with a new name, a new life and in a new town.

Once again she must move and is wisked away. She is protected but encounters Jonathan Bovaro, the very one she is running from. He talks her into coming with him, that she is safe. She learns from him, a child himself, that he was the one to give information to his father about the witnesses to the killing many years before. Ultimately, she looses her parents to it also.

She comes to know why she has been on the run all these years and learns to love. When will this all end? It's all up to Jonathan and his doing the right thing.

A tragic story but a extremely good one. Could very well be true. To live in a make believe life is unimaginable. No contact even with family is unthinkable to me. On a scale of 1 to 5 I rate it an 8. Thank you Miriam for sending it to Tess who gave it to me to read for her.
