Summary fromShannon’s web site (I copied this from Jess's blog and stole her holly berries, mwahahahahah!)
Something strange is stalking the small town of Junction…His name is pronounced as Peter. Some of you may be questioning his last name as I did (Shannon, don't hate me!) but rest assured, Ms. Delany assures us it was not a casual error. There is a reason for Peitr to have a feminine surname. Just as there is a reason I have a masculine one!
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.
