Waiting On Wednesday (15)

Waiting On Wednesday was created by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. It's a weekly post for you to share what upcoming books you can't wait for!

13 To Life: A Werewolf's Tale by Shannon Delany.
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin.
Release date: June 22, 2010.

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.

This is one of the few on the top of my wish-list. The cover is beautiful and the synopsis is driving me mad with want! Can't wait!


  1. Katie, thank you so much for WoW-ing 13 TO LIFE! I was VERY fortunate to have Ervin Serrano do the cover design. He was very open to my thoughts and concerns and very quick to meet the book's needs (which is as good as it gets)!

    Have you gotten to read the excerpt (or seen the trailer)? Both are available at my author site The excerpt's under "Free Reads" and I'll be making more stuff available as we get closer to June!

    I'm so glad you're excited to get a copy of my debut!

    Thank you so much! :-)
    PS--Since I know it's here, if any of your readers have questions I'll pop in a couple more times today to answer. :-)

  2. Very intriguing plot and the cover is gorgeous! Is this a 2k10 debut book? I think I'll add this to my challenge list!

    Great pick, Katie!

  3. Can't wait to read this one too!!! Premise definitely sounds interesting (another bad boy alert here?), and I love the sound of secrets. And I agree that the cover is GORGEOUS. Props to Ervin Serrano. :)

  4. This sounds so great I am so stoked. The cover rocks

  5. Great pick! I really want to read this one. And I don't want to wait til June. :) LOVE the cover too.

  6. Hi Bianca, yes "13 to Life" is my debut novel and releases in 2010 (I very much appreciate you adding it to your challenge list--Yay!). Oh! I'm a member of the Class of 2K10 (please check their debuts out, too--great folks)!

    Jenn, my editor's actually very big on the suspense/mystery books and the fact he loves this novel (I think it's his first YA, but don't quote me on that ;-) makes me feel pretty good.

    Cleverly Inked and Casey--thank you both so much. I hope you love the book (and I'm glad you already love the cover ;-).

    Take care!
