Summary from GoodreadsSomething 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.
Maggie Stiefvater's Linger contest last week got me thinking about all the books about werewolves that are set to come out this year.  So for the next few weeks I will be spotlighting books with/or about werewolves.  This week's book is 13 to Life: A Werewolf's Tale.  In 2008, Shannon Delany won a cell phone novel writing contest which led to a deal with St. Martin's Press. That is just awesome!  The summary above and the cover really drew me to this book. The cover has so many elements - the full moon in the middle of the eye, the forest in the background and the girl in the foreground - that work together to create a mysterious feel. 
13 to Life has gotten some great reviews and I can't wait to read it when it comes out in June!
