Description (from back of book)
 Everything about Jessica Gillmansen's life changed when her mother died.
Now even her hometown of Junction is changing. Mysterious dark things are happening.
All Jessie wants is to avoid more change. but while showing a hot new guy around Junciton High, she's about to discover a whole new type of hange. Pietr Rusakova is more than good looks and a fascinatig secret - he's a guy with a dangerous secret. And his very existence is sure to bring big trouble to Jessie's smal town. t seems change is the one thing Jessie can't avoid

 13 to  life is about a farmgirl named Jessie, a typical high school student whos life becomes anything then typical. Sure she has to deal with frends (one of whom has a rather surprizing past.) teachures and popular girls. Lets not forget Pietr, the hot russian guy who has come to Junction.
The book was pretty good, the pacing was a little slow, you wil have to read all the way to chapter 28 (of 29)to find out about Pietrs secret (though there is quite a bit of forshadowing, so youll probably guess it beforehand)

The charactors are well written out, jessie is brave and smart and not selfish. she puts others before heself and that is refreshing (well at the begining she was a bit peevd at having to show Peitr around) Her friends are likeable as well, you may change your mind later on but i thouroughl enjoyed them. The writing style is simple an easy, it has its own charm and keeps you engaged into the story.

13 to lfe's cover is simple, and mysterious, i thnk it fits in well. you cn clearly see its jessie and Pietr on the front. Keep a lookout for Secrets and Shadows coming Feb 2011!
