Wednesday Random Recommendation (28)
13 To Life:
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.
You all know how much I love werewolves, and Shannon Delany has added an incredible story to the lore. Her original history of their origins is intriguing and I can’t wait to learn more in Secrets and Shadows. I love the characters of Jessie Gillmansen and Pietr Rusakova and their budding relationship. It’s filled with mystery and romance, a page-turning book that I simply couldn’t put down!
I invite and welcome anyone interested in participating to post their own "Random Recommendation" (original post) on their blog (and include a link back to this blog) and join in the fun! Some books might not be very recent reads, but I hope that just helps these (sometimes forgotten) books earn a spot on your own bookshelf!
