Summary (from Goodreads): She’s been six different people in six different places: Madeline in Ohio, Isabelle in Missouri, Olivia in Kentucky . . . But now that she’s been transplanted to rural Louisiana, she has decided that this fake identity will be her last.
Witness Protection has taken nearly everything from her. But for now, they’ve given her a new name, Megan Rose Jones, and a horrible hair color. For the past eight months, Meg has begged her father to answer one question: What on earth did he do – or see – that landed them in this god-awful mess? Meg has just about had it with all the Suits’ rules — and her dad’s silence. If he won’t help, it’s time she got some answers for herself.
But Meg isn’t counting on Ethan Landry, an adorable Louisiana farm boy who’s too smart for his own good. He knows Meg is hiding something big. And it just might get both of them killed. As they embark on a perilous journey to free her family once and for all, Meg discovers that there’s only one rule that really matters — survival.
Review: Elston’s debut novel is must read. It is packed full of mystery, romance and danger. And who can resist a story about a teenager in Witness Protection ? I’ve always wondered what Witness Protection would be like–not that I want to join the program anytime soon. The Rules for Disappearing gives you an inside look and doesn’t gloss over the hardships that Protection costs families. I was immediately whisked away to Louisiana with Meg and still can’t get her, Ethan and Teeny out of mind. Disappearing really is a page turner. I’m looking forward to adding to Room 918’s bookshelves in May.
