WoW: 13 to Life by Shannon Delany

First, a great big HUGE thanks to Carla over at The Crooked Shelf because without her I would know NOTHING about this book.
She featured it today as her Waiting on Wednesday and I’m stealing it as mine too. Why? Because I’m a sucker for shifters and this book has already proven its potential to be phenomenal.
13 to life

13 to Life by Shannon Delany
320 Pages
St. Martin’s Griffin (June 22, 2010)
$9.99 paperback (, 12/02/09)

Summary (Shannon’s web site)

Something strange is stalking the small town of Junction…
When junior Jess Gillmansen gets called out of class by Guidance, she can only presume it’s for one of two reasons. Either they’ve finally figured out who wrote the scathing anti-jock editorial in the school newspaper or they’re hosting yet another intervention for her about her mom. Although far from expecting it, she’s relieved to discover Guidance just wants her to show a new student around—but he comes with issues of his own including a police escort.
The newest member of Junction High, Pietr Rusakova has secrets to hide--secrets that will bring big trouble to the small town of Junction—secrets including dramatic changes he’s undergoing that will surely end his life early.
His name is pronounced as Peter.

The excerpt is AWESOME. I want to read more now. June is really, really far away. :(

  1. Oooo. I will be waiting impatiently!! Thanks for the heads up!

  2. Really should be Rusakov >_< Great looking book though. Sounds interesting.

  3. Thanks, for the lovely WoW, Jess!

    Hi Lorelei! Love your name, btw. :-) I hope you enjoy reading the book as much as I enjoyed writing it.

    Hi L.J.! LOL There is a reason for *nearly* everything within this series, even the family name (which comes up in the second book, due out January 2011). And, oddly enough, the circumstance surrounding it is drawn from real life. :D

    Thanks again, Jess!

  4. Gah! You're going to make us wait that long to know why! :) Can't wait to read it.

  5. Thanks for the reply Shannon!

    I agree with L.J.! We have to wait that long! :( 13 to Life isn't out until June next year and I'd assume book 2 will follow one year after that! :(

    I'm sure it'll be worth the wait.

  6. I read about this, and it does look very intriguing.

    Yeah, June 2010 does seem far off, right now.

  7. Sounds VERY good. I will be adding to my goodreads to-read shelf! Thanks for sharing it.
