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.
I don't want to scare people away by saying that this is similar to Twilight, but it's like the werewolf version sans vampires. I loved Twilight and typically werewolf books are not my thing. I've not really read many. I have been taking "notes" while reading books because I have read so many and often I don't read books that follow them in the series until later on - this one I read so quickly that I never took notes. I devoured it.
Delany did exceptionally well character and world building. I like the little twists and turns throughout the book and I am excited to read the others in the series.
