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.
ReviewI've been wanting to read this book since I first saw it. So I must say that I had very high expectations for this book and I was so glad that I wasn't disappointed! The characters were great, the plot was intense, and there were definitely a lot of swoonworthy moments.
The Rules of Disappearing follows Meg throughout her journey in the Witness Protection Program. Early on, we see that the Witness Protection Program is not all the glitz and glamour some books and movies make it out to be.
I loved watching Meg struggle to figure out WHY they are even in the Witness Protection Program. I felt every emotion from Meg through Elston's writing. Meg is funny but just up tight at the same time. But you can't blame her. Six moves in the last couple months. That would be horrendous. Elston did a great job of portraying every thought and feeling of Meg to let the reader feel it.
Elston also did a great job of keeping the reader guessing. By the end I honestly had no idea who was the bad guy or the good guy. It could of been a variety of people. I love books that can keep the reader guessing so its not predictable. Some aspects were a little predictable, but not all.
I loved Ethan, Meg's boyfriend. He is just the greatest. He is so understanding with Meg even though he has no idea what is going on with her. If I were him I probably would of bailed out a long time ago. He's so sweet and caring and stays with Meg throughout everything.
I recommend this book to everyone! You guys seriously need to all read this now!
