Review: The Rules for Disappearing by Ashley Elston

Review Haiku:

She's had many names.
Madeline, Isabelle, now...
Meg. Could this one stick?

Being in the Witness Protection Program is the worst. It's hard to keep up from place to place, from name to name, from one crappy apartment to the next.

And Meg's family is basically falling apart. Her mom's drinking too much, and her dad is oblivious. Her younger sister, Mary is barely holding it together.

Now it's their sixth move, this time to Louisiana. And this time, Meg wants to stay. She's tired of running and tired of the cat and mouse chase. She doesn't even really know what they're running from. And when she meets Landry, he somehow knows that she's hiding something big. But Meg knows she can't tell him.

This mix of mystery, romance, and danger should appeal to almost any high school reader. It's hard not to imagine yourself in Meg's place.

And if you really like it, there's a sequel coming out May 20th. And if you really, really like it, come see Sandy and she'll let you borrow her advanced reader's copy of the sequel, entitled The Rules for Breaking.
