The Rules for Disappearing (The Rules for Disappearing #1) by Ashley Elston

The Rules for Disappearing (The Rules for Disappearing, #1)
Blurb (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.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Rules for Disappearing (The Rules for Disappearing, #1)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
17-year-old Meg is in the witness protection programme for something her father did, and she hates that she has no life.
Why are Meg and her family really in witness protection? And can Meg find a way that they can all get out safely?

This was an okay story, but it dragged so much that I lost interest.

Meg (or whatever she wants to call herself) was an okay character, and it was nice the way she looked out for her sister. I felt really sorry for her and the way she kept having to change identities all the time, but she also made some stupid mistakes.

The storyline was okay, but it just dragged so much. I felt like I had been reading for hours and hours by the 30% mark, and nothing had happened! In fact very little happened at all until right at the end.
There was some romance, and it was sweet. It was really obvious that Meg wasn’t going to be able to stay away from Ethan though.
The ending was okay, and we did get a bit of action, it took so long to get there though that I had really lost interest by that point.
Overall; okay story, but dragged too much,
6 out of 10.
