The Rules (Project Paper Doll, #1)
The Rules (Project Paper Doll #1) by Stacey Kade
Publication Date: April 23rd 2013
Genre: Young Science Fiction Romance
1. Never trust anyone.

2. Remember they are always searching.

3. Don't get involved.

4. Keep your head down.

5. Don't fall in love.

Five simple rules. Ariane Tucker has followed them since the night she escaped from the genetics lab where she was created, the result of combining human and extraterrestrial DNA. Ariane's survival-and that of her adoptive father-depends on her ability to blend in among the full-blooded humans, to hide in plain sight from those who seek to recover their lost (and expensive) "project."

But when a cruel prank at school goes awry, it puts Adriane in the path of Zane Bradshaw, the police chief's son and someone who sees too much. Someone who really sees her. After years of trying to be invisible, Ariane finds the attention frightening-and utterly intoxicating. Suddenly, nothing is simple anymore, especially not the rules.
“So it turns out that late-night flashes of brilliance often look a little less brilliant in the bright light of morning.”
 “It might have been my human side clamoring for blood, or my alien side looking for a chance to exercise strategic dominance over a lesser life form. Either way, I was going to win.” 
 “The trouble with rules, though, is that you'll always be tempted to break one- for the right reasons, due to unavoidable circumstances, because it feels as if there's no other choice. And once you break one, the rest seem like so much broken glass. The damage is already done.” 

“Stacey Kade crafts an action-packed and wildly romantic story about our desire to not only be seen but also understood. The Rules is a great read.” —Rachel Cohn, best-selling author of Beta and Gingerbread

“I was immediately swept up in Ariane’s story. Equal parts thrill-ride and love story, The Rules is intense and emotional. This book stays with you long after you finish.” —Sophie Jordan, New York Times best-selling author of the Firelight series

“After so many super intense on-the-run dystopians, The Rules was a refreshing blend of sci-fi and contemporary with a sexy Tom Welling-like male lead.” –Nawanda Files

“The Rules covers a bit of everything from bullying, parental issues, romance, and more. Stacey Kade took real life issues and mixed it with a sci/fi feeling, and she pulled it off perfectly.” –Good Choice Reading
