Sinopsis: One day she is Linda Farley, a senior in a San Diego high school, with a talent for art, an annoying younger brother, two loving parents, and a prospective boyfriend. Three days later, she is Lainie Foster, hiding with her mother and brother in Olympia, Washington.    That's how fast things change after Linda's mother tells her that her father has been caught by the feds in a Mafia money laundering scheme and that the rest of the family has been placed in the Witness Protection Program. By the rules she's given, she must stay out of school, cut off contact with anyone back home, and never tell anyone what has happened.   Linda -- now Lainie -- does her best, but in navigating her new life, she faces a number of questions. How could her father do something so contrary to her image of him? Why is her mother so familiar with their new city? How can she pursue a career in art without going to school? What must she do to save her brother from the worst effects of the upheaval? And who is that dark-haired woman she keeps spotting in front of the house?    Then there's the biggest question of all: Is she Linda or is she Lainie? Because, in the end, is the choice really anyone's but hers?   /////////////////////////////////////////////////   Anne L. Watson, a retired historic preservation architecture consultant, is the author of several novels, plus books on such diverse subjects as soapmaking and baking with cookie molds. She currently lives in Friday Harbor, Washington, in the San Juan Islands, with her husband and fellow author, Aaron Shepard, and their cat, Skeeter. This is her first book for young adults.  

From the Author:   SAMPLE    "Lainie," Mom said, her voice a little gentler, "we have to follow the rules, whether we like them or not."   "The rules are nuts, Mom," I protested. "Like making us keep our old initials. So the Mafia is too stupid to check the passenger lists for trains and planes leaving Southern California? You think they won't look for two A.F.'s and an L.F. with one-way tickets to the same place?"   Mom moved to the right to let a tailgating Jeep speed ahead. "That's one reason we're splitting up," she said. "WITSEC has never lost anyone who followed the rules," she said.   "WITSEC?" I yelped. "Who the hell is that?"   "The Witness Security Program. That's its other name."   Sheesh. WITSEC. Like the FBI was such a buddy, we needed to give them a nickname. My face itched, and I rubbed it hard.   "Don't do that," Mom said. "You'll rub off your makeup."   "It feels like dirt. I don't know how you put up with it."   "You get used to it. Especially when you have more important things to worry about."   Well, we had that, in spades. I'd just dumped someone I really wanted to go out with. I wouldn't be going to art school next year, because that's what Linda Farley would have done. I had to be someone else, probably forever. Compared to that, grease all over my face really was a detail.   I gave up and quit talking about it. Whining wasn't going to do any good. Mom kept quiet too, watching the traffic. In the front seat, Alan sang some dumb song from a TV kids' show, over and over. But, as Mom had said, I had more important things to worry about.   We took the Alameda Street exit and pulled into the train station.   "What are you going to do with the car when you get to the airport?" I asked.   "Leave it in a parking lot with the window down and the keys in the ignition."   Even the Mafia wouldn't have a chance if she did that. The locals would have that car in a chop shop faster than the Godfather could blink.   I got out, staggering a little in my high heels. Mom unloaded my new suitcase, and I waved as she pulled away.    Finally alone in the huge, echoing main hall of Union Station, I thought about calling Nicholas. If I could figure out who might be a federal marshal, I could make a call without being seen. But no one looked likely. I could probably rule out the lady with the screaming twins. Maybe the down-at-the-heels man, checking the ashtrays for smokeable cigarette butts? I gave up. Hell, for all I knew, it could be one of the pigeons flapping around the rafters high overhead.    I snorted. The melodrama was getting to me, but just the same, it was creepy to think of trained watchers out there -- the good guys and the bad guys. Like some TV show you wouldn't watch any longer than it took to find the channel-change button on the remote.    Bye, Nicholas. I tried to think it hard enough to reach him.    /////////////////////////////////////////////////   NOVELS BY ANNE L. WATSON   SKEETER: A CAT TALE. When a stray kitten romps into Lynne's life, she has no idea what she's getting into. As Lynne describes in letters to her friend Angie, Skeeter is all cat -- high-spirited, contrary, inventive, and so goofy that he reminds Lynne of her own nuttiest escapades. No one who meets Skeeter will ever be quite the same again.   PACIFIC AVENUE. When young Kathy Woodbridge steps off the bus in San Pedro, California, she is running away from her past in Louisiana -- a past burdened by family tragedy and the imprisonment of the man she has loved. Soon she meets Lacey Greer, who can sense the young woman is deeply troubled. But before Lacey can help, she must uncover just what Kathy is running from.   JOY. In the Oakland, California, of 1989, Mirai San Julian is a young woman with a fascinating life and a rich past. She restores historic carousels -- her dream career -- working from her own studio in a former roller skating rink. But why is everything suddenly falling apart? Mirai knows how to restore a carousel, but can she restore relationships with those she loves?    FLIGHT (Young Adult). Linda Farley of San Diego is now living as Lainie Foster with her mother and brother in Olympia, Washington, under rules she's been given for being in the Witness Protection Program. But questions confront her at every turn. How could her loving father get involved in a Mafia money laundering scheme? Why is her mother so familiar with their new city? And who is that dark-haired woman she keeps spotting in front of the house?
