Start Your Day With Serial: The 13 to Life Blog Tour

What's 13 to Life about?

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 sho w 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.

13 to Life: Chapter 4, part I (used with the author’s permission)

Pietr’s foot began to tap softly. He glanced at Mr. Miles, then at the clock, then at his notes. Then the clock, his notes and Mr. Miles.
Mr. Miles told us how, as Hitler sent extermination squads out after the remaining gypsies and Jews, his troops balked at the idea of entering one forest. It was reportedly haunted and the S.S. was superstitious. But Hitler didn’t grasp the meaning of no and made them go in.
