Waiting on Wednesday #3 - The Rules for Disappearing

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It's a way to highlight eagerly anticipated hot, new titles.


As soon as I saw this book reviewed over on Karen's Addictions, I knew I had to have it and it immediately went on my wishlist! It's not my usual urban fantasy read, but I've always been fascinated with the idea of changing your identity and becoming someone new. 

When I was in high school, I even bought some books on how to create a new identity! Unfortunately, they were pretty lame and my dreams of becoming a brand new person went unfulfilled. :(

The Witness Protection program is also fascinating for me. I know it's nothing like My Blue Heaven, Goodfellas, or Madea's Witness Protection, but I still like reading or watching movies about it.

So without any further ado, here's my latest WoW title:

The Rules for Disappearing by Ashley Elston

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. (Goodreads)



Doesn't that sound awesome? Not only is Meg having to adjust to life in the Witness Protection program, but  there's a possible love interest as well as the mystery thriller aspect! Sounds like a must read to me!

Expected publication: May 14, 2013 by Disney Hyperion

  1. I'm looking forward to this one as well. I also think it's awesome that when you were in high school you bought books to learn how to change your identity, I'm sorry that your dreams went unfulfilled :(

    1. I also wanted to move to Australia after high school, so there's another unfulfilled dream. DH doesn't like long flights, so don't know if we'll even be able to visit. C'est la vie.

  2. I saw this on NetGalley a few days ago and was not able to obtain a copy. :( So, I guess you could say I am also waiting for it, hehe. I think it sounds pretty interesting!

    1. Love the whole premise! I'm trying to stay away from NetGalley, so didn't realize it was on there. I'm being good though, so will try to wait for May. :)

    1. Trying to resist going on NetGalley, as moderation and I aren't are speaking terms so I always request too many titles. But am sooooo tempted!

  9. Wow, this looks really good. What must it be like to live like that, with a different identity in every town?? I'm definitely going to check this one out.

    1. Think it would get confusing to have to keep all those names straight! Just when you get used to one name and backstory, the Program might move you and set you up with another new identity. I know it would confuse the heck out of me!
