13 to Life (13 to Life, #1)
I won an advance copy of this book through the Good Reads "First Reads" program. I wanted to like this book a lot more than I ultimately did. Some of the character motivations were baffling to me and I would really have liked more background information on the characters and situation to find the while thing plausible. Also, I felt as though the parallels to Twilight (minus the vampires) were just too strong to ignore - making this feel like "more of the same" instead of something fresh. There were glimmers of original and interesting storylines in the book and I would have liked to see the author follow those. I suspect avid werewolf fans will enjoy this book, but I don't see it with broad appeal to readers beyond that niche. Still, I'm hopeful that as this is a first novel, the author will tighten her writing in future books and that good things are still in store (this is intended to be the first in a series after all).
