Chloe Jacobs is a typical teenager with high hopes and a master plan for her life. She has a passion for art and has worked her butt off to get an early acceptance to NYU. Her best friend, Sebastian, has also been accepted to NYU and they plan on going together and enjoying college life. Unfortunately, all Chloe’s hopes and dreams come to a screeching halt when both of her parents are killed in a freak car accident.

Suddenly, Chloe is being whisked off by federal marshalls, being cut off from anyone and everyone she has ever known, and being put on 24-hour protective cutody. She finds out that she is now a part of the witness protection program and must break all ties with her past and start a new life in a new place. Everything is a completely confusing and traumatizing whirlwind around her and she must figure everything out anew.

A Life Revealed is a wonderful story that weaves together the tale of a regular teenager and the traumatizing experience of being without one’s family and friends. I like how the book flowed between the every day situations and events and Chloe’s personal thoughts and activities. The chapters were short, but at the same time flowed together; A Life Revealed is a great book for anyone that doesn’t have a lot of free time and only has a few minutes to themselves throughout the day. Suzi Katz has already let her readers know that a sequel is in the works which makes me very excited as I can’t wait to catch up with Chloe again.

Jessa lives in Utah with her husband, 2 sons, 2 cats, and 2 dogs. She goes to school full time as an English major with a focus in creative writing. She likes anime and reads books and plays video games in her moments of spare time.
